    Pros

    good pay and benefits including health plan. constant food days where the company feeds you as well as opportunities to get things such as Wells Fargo clothing and other things.

    Cons

    advancement may be capped out very quickly with no real place to go except lateral moves, once a year raises are the same day across the board no matter when you arrive and that really sucks, constantly hiring and people are constantly leaving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    very difficult and you must work very hard for years to do so

    Pros

    I am currently working as a contractor and nearing the end of my contract. The position pays fairly well for the market and I enjoy the environment. I an with Wells Fargo Advisers, specifically focusing on the brokerage division. I would say the overall office environment is a 7 out of 10 and the "hands off" approach I enjoy is a 10 out of 10. As I believe it should be. Proof is in the pudding, if you aren't delivering what is asked for, then we will talk. Otherwise, do what you need to do. Part of this relates to the department being spread between St Louis, Richmond and Charlotte.

    Cons

    The downside to "Hands off" is there isn't much "On-boarding." If you need help you may have to ask. Sure we need to know our profession, but day one, I was unsure where the bathrooms were, where I could get a coffee cup, where to get desk supplies. I learned this over time but for an introvert this may be a little difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably a little more guidance for on-boarding. If you want new people to help with the workload. Take a step back for a day or two to teach them the ropes. Rather than letting them flounder for weeks.

    Current Employee - Technical Project Manager in Charlotte, NC

    Pros

    Flexibility, Sense of Entitlement, Excellent Team Work and project team reliability.

    Cons

    Contract ends too soon, too early and the protocols aren't in the contractors favor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the finances for more permanent jobs. Wells waste money on training 3 - 6 months only to train someone else in the same role 12 months later. Employees become a major part of the team only to be relieved of their duties as contractors.

    Former Employee - Human Resources in Charlotte, NC

    Pros

    Large company with many locations and the ability to move around in the company. I was displaced twice; however, I always found another role within the company. Most managers/leaders really care about their employees. I enjoyed going to work.

    Cons

    Travel with some positions can mean lots of travel. A lot of employees become burned out, especially during a merger and the amount of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees and give them honest feedback. Promote learning and advancement on all levels.

    Pros

    Huge company. Get along with coworkers. Learn a lot on the job about finance. Help customers. Paid training. Ability to grow within the company. Paid vacation.

    Cons

    Sales Pressure is too intense. No sick leave. No time off for death in the immediate family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more in tough with your staff at the branch level, they know your customers and have better suggestions on how to deal with them. Pay your employees more!

    Pros

    Easy to move up within the company. Everyone is friendly and shows support. Managers are also helpful.

    Cons

    It all depends on the branch you decide to work at. Some branches are more busy than others. Thats a given.

    Pros

    professional growth is great, management wants to know goals of others and wants to help attain them. the office culture is like family and home, easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Dealing with irate customers, on top of that try to meet your sales quota. the work-life balance is not so great, people say it is a 9-5 job but there are some long hours worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great job on professional growth for other team members. When upper management comes to visit retail store do not make it awkward for the customers, you look obvious.
