    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a bank that will introduce you to all phases of personal banking. I think that's great as it affords you and the company an opportunity to see what you enjoy doing and are good at. The standing policy is that you need to be with Wells for one year before being promoted. I just hit my one year mark and promotion has been brought up by my store manager and my district manager so I am excited about the opportunity to concentrate on specialized areas where I have demonstrated the necessary skills to produce optimum results.
    I drive 45 miles to my location every day because we have a dynamic group of people in a community where I have decades of personal and business connections. Sometimes I wish I worked down the block but it would have to be as a manager because where I am at now I couldn't ask for a better store manager. She keeps it real and she is a company person through and through.

    Cons

    It's Wells Fargo's way or the highway and with 35 years of sales and customer service experience it's a little tough to swallow sometimes. I'd say it's a little like distributive education class in high school sometimes and they insist you stage coach, lobby lead and do your call backs at specific times during the day so you end up dropping everything that is creating profit and increasing production so you can stand next to a teller and look for new opportunities or greet people and guide them in the right direction at the door. Both of these are noble causes but you would think that a team of professionals would be allowed to produce without being micromanaged to the point of being ridiculous sometimes. Role playing the road map is totally annoying and ridiculing sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people would rather get a steady paycheck and do not mind doing service issues as long as they get their hourly wage. Some employees are more goal orientated and cherish their opportunity to achieve success by being productive and love to earn the incentives and rewards that come with achieving sales goals. My advice; pay someone to do the service work and let the producers produce.

    Great vision and values

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Great mission statement and finally focusing their objectives in the right area (wealth), however sometimes the "little guys" feel left out. I work in the wealth area and we offer some great services to our clients. Clients love having a big bank wih lots of convenience services and accessibilities.

    Cons

    It's taken the bank a while to get where we are despite our initiatives and focus. In the wealth area, it seems to have taken us a while to get where we are and are still behind the 8-ball as to how we should be able to manage our clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the RBPB and wealth team members out of retail again so they can focus their strengths in the right area. Also- you revoked a company expense card for retail stores, but still expect managers and relationship managers to spend money on their teams and clients without reimbursement. That is unsustainable for positive team morale.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was good for me coming in wih no bank experience. Great team. Co workers were awsome. Since leaving Wells Fargo Ive worked for another bank and the system at Wells is extremely user friendly and easy to use. Traning was great. They paid for commute time and mileage to and from training.

    Cons

    Sales, sales, sales. Really High Sales goals. The pressure was extremely stressful. But if you can take the stress (and not fall into "gaming") then I think its worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on sales there are great employees who based on the store location and demographics may not be meeting there sales goal but that shouldnt be a reason to get written up. I think that as long as they are making a true effort and are sincerely pushing the services the bank has to offer there ahould be no reason for a write up.
