Good learning experience that explained how much stress I was capable of handling at once.

Pros

The paid-time-off, friendly coworkers, and great managers.

Cons

The policies, inflexible hours, sales-pushiness, stress for lack of staffing, and no proper on-site training development for beginners.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand how the level of staffing can affect customer service and smooth operations. Don't expect to have low investing in training, low staffing, high sales goals expectation, 100% customer service, and a fast experience. Do not throw your new tellers in a drive-thru with four lanes by themselves until they are prepared.

    I worked at Wachovia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work when it was Wachovia. Not sure now that it's been bought by Wells Fargo. Laid back environment for an Investment Bank. If you're in the investment banking section, you still get comparable compensation as other Wall Street firms, working in a city (Charlotte) with low cost of living. A lot of new business to get involved when I was there back in 2005 to 2008.

    Cons

    Made serious mistakes in mortgage business but you all know that. Maybe it was too eager to imitate other Wall Street firms instead of sticking to its strength.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope Wells Fargo will keep the culture from Wachovia.

    Pros

    benefits, good people to work around. the legacy employees were great and were proud to be there

    Cons

    culture suffered after a string of acquisitions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lead with conviction; many times failing employees were made to feel miserable until they left on their own volition
