    Pros

    Many great benefits, such as pto, 401k, tuition reimbursement, health, dental, and vision insurance. Many opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    There is too much pressure daily to sell bank products even if you work at a slow branch and you have the same customers over and over again.

    Pretty good - could be better for contractors

    Former Employee - Project Coordinator in San Antonio, TX
    Former Employee - Project Coordinator in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They seem to have a lot of incentives and activities. The main campus has a wonderful café (two, actually), with food made on-site and not too expensive.

    Cons

    As a contractor, there were lots of things (incentives, activities, etc.) that didn't apply to me. It's sort of hard to see everyone else getting to do all these things that you can't. However, they weren't too strict about it. Also, they seem to use a lot of contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bringing on 'floating' workers. As a project coordinator, I could have gone from one project to the next, and still gotten the benefits and incentives. I don't think it would cost that much more (if any), and would greatly improve morale.

    Pros

    -good pay
    -Good incentives
    -Tellers are a good team

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider that we're human, stuff happens people will have issues but theres a healthy way to address that.

    Pros

    Entry pay is good. The people you work with are awesome.

    Cons

    Management doesnt care about employee's. Always want you to work. One day off which is Sunday when the branch is closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop presuring your employee's to shove products and services to every customer

    Former Employee - Teller in Waco, TX
    Former Employee - Teller in Waco, TX

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as a teller while I was a full time student, so I appreciated that they were willing to work with my schedule to some degree. Their training program is boring but once you get through that and get to know the people you work with it's not half bad. Hours are consistent and considering the job, it actually pays fairly well.

    Cons

    While some people were nice, the drama that took place in the work environment was ridiculous to say the least. Also, if you are a natural born seller, this is the worst job for you. They want you to read a script to almost every customer, which because you have so many regulars, they end up getting angry with you.Lastly, when I first started out the management was great, but corporate cleaned house and brought in management that became notorious for playing favorites. In the end, myself and several others left because of the shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to do a better job of listening to their tellers and bankers. Those are the people who interact with the clients on a daily basis so they know their needs. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THEM.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo offers a diverse work environment and values the differences of its team members. Although it is an incredibly large company, most of the areas I have visited are warm, inviting, and family oriented.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo declares its people are its competitive advantage in the marketplace, but they are more interested in keeping salary figures in the "average" range in the interest of not skewing averages for specific job title. The term "balance the playing field" is used often during compensation conversations which comes across as a socialist idea.

    Pros

    Good and affordable health benefits, Paid Holidays, Good hours.

    Cons

    Wells is a big Company therefore they don't know who their managers really are or what really goes on in the branches. Teller Manager I was working with tried to do some unethical things, I refused and went down hill after that. Store manager was informed about issue and since the teller manager had been there for years she practically told me I was lying. After I told her I would tell Human Resources about it so they can fix the issue, she finally decided to believe me and talk to teller manager(which stepped down to lead teller ). I felt very uncomfortable after that, I only lasted 6 months with the company for that reason and this is the company I have lasted the least amount of time with. In my past jobs I have lasted 2 years and 4 years, kinda wish I would have told HR about the problem but I wasn't sure if they were going to dismiss me like the store manager did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to why employees are leaving, explain new employees how PTO and other benefits work, don't try to hide things from HR to protect a bad apple.

    Sales goals are top priority end of story. Ethical issues ignored as long as the sales were being made.

    Excellent benefits, retirement plan & resources.

    Cutting back on cost to train employees properly significantly effected quality of customer service.
