I worked at Wachovia full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There was a big focus on employee training and development for all levels, excellent execution of corporate strategies to the branch with organization and attention to detail, and I feel we maintained integrity while gaining the business from our customers.

Cons

There was a very big company feel and a loss of individual office personality; everything was micromanaged and even the management styles were no longer allowed to be autonomous in the branches. The computer systems were also far behind in technology and not user friendly primarily due to the previous acquisitions. And the health benefits were very expensive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall a great company to work for; it's unfortunate about the timing with the banking industry struggles.

    Pros

    Good benefits, regular hours. Other than that, not much.

    Cons

    No room for creativity in the least. If you do well, they make it more difficult for you until you can't do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't move your top performers to a position where they can't keep that up

    Pros

    Great environment, lots of young professionals, room for growth if you are interested.

    Cons

    Teller staff is never more than two people at the window sometime one person until 10 am. Lots of favoritism, unorganized management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be more organized, take interest in the staff, and stand up for your staff.
