    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to get a new position because of the WF name.

    Cons

    Micro managed. Constantly hounded to sell, sell, sell so we can keep, keep, keep every red cent if what you earn for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the profits. Look at the cost of living in the state where the position is located. Be honest to employees about how difficult it will be to earn commissions so they are able to make informed decisions.

    Pros

    The people I worked closely with, that's it! Going to miss some really good people. I was desperately trying to get out of retail, I was three days away from finding out if I got the position I really wanted. Kind of ironic.

    Cons

    2 years w/ company. Top performer finishing top 1 and 2 in all of Denver consistently. I was recently terminated for a false accusation and I'm going to fight to clear my name. I had just finished training to become a business specialist. High pressure sales of awful products with NO compensation!!! Horrible culture and hiring tactics. Advancement is slow. Too many micro managers. Treat customers well to their face, then steal their money when they aren't looking. No recognition for leaders. If you get on their bad side, look out!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your sales team. Lower the metrics for bonuses. Oh, if you want sales people, then teach sales tactics!!

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork is very strong in some areas yet mostly in the branch offices. Cross-training aids in keeping a quality service for clients.

    Cons

    While benefits are somewhat fair, former securities employees need to accommodate non-holidays of the bank. New management is all about the numbers, taking away from the add-on customer service that clients deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workers in the field and ask more than mundane questions in employee surveys.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, rock-solid marketing, theoretically good opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Very poor treatment of lower level employees, HR department completely out of touch with business needs, Company and management very clearly value profit more than people and will keep toxic employees who support given regime, but quickly dump hard working employees focused on building strong and controlled core business. Unfortunately for Wells Fargo, this is not limited to one or two business lines but rather is a way of doing business and will, in the end, leave too many 'yes' people in place at the expense of a strong culture of control and people-first. While Wells should be a great employer for advancement, it is surprisingly poor from an HR perspective. HR policies will not allow employees to grow into new positions or career paths unless they have direct experience. This focus on pedigree over competence will eventually weaken the company. Sadly, this isn't unique to Wells Fargo, but certainly more pronounced than at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management has to better understand the importance of strong controls and fully developed team members. Wells Fargo is brilliant at marketing, but does not truly live what it preaches when it comes to valuing employees or customers. This erosion of integrity can be changed, but will continue if not addressed.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    It's a paycheck and that's about all I can say is a pro

    Cons

    Too many sales not enough money for what you have to do in an eight hour day too focused on numbers managers not really looking out for what's best for the employees staying two nights a week to make solicitation calls sucks. Management should be forthcoming with what really is expected of you on a day to day basis during the interview because had they been with me I would not have taken the position. Your basic duty is to sell checking accounts and credit cards there's no fun in that and it seems a little trivial to me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Won't waste my time they're not going to listen

  10. Management needs improvement of listening to employees
