    Pros

    Nationwide footprint makes it easier to relocate.
    Career opportunities/opportunities for advancement and the tendency to promote from within.
    Strong company with tight controls on operations.

    Cons

    I'm seeing a trend where good, solid, hardworking, ambitious and talented team members in retail banking are pushed to their limits and many of them are feeling extreme stress due to the twin forces of extremely aggressive sales goals and a reduction in staff to reach those goals due to budgetary constraints. Store management in particular is being asked to practically perform miracles. I know many store managers who are leaders within their market who have grown to hate their jobs. These are previously extremely engaged, extremely productive and loyal to WF people who are feeling stressed and very unhappy. If the economy were better, they would be leaving for better opportunities. It's just not worth the stress. I worry about the future of this company if they don't try to retain their best people. Unfortunately, I know people all around the country that work for WF who all feel this way.

    Luckily, I scored a position outside of retail, though I'm feeling the constraints of a reduced workforce as I am expected to do the work of two people. I have very poor work/life balance. The demands on my time are high and it is taking a toll on my personal life. I enjoy doing a job well, but at the end of the day, I work to live, not the other way around. It would be nice if WF recognized that I need that balance to truly be the most effective employee I could be and one that felt some loyalty to the company.

    I don't hate what I do or hate the company, but I can assure you, if I had the opportunity to make the same pay with a normal 40 hour work week, I would take it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without treating people with respect, your business will crumble. Your customers and your employees ARE your business. Don't forget it. Your current strategy of short term profits for your shareholders at any cost, like cutting employee benefits, cutting positions, increasing sales goals and charging new fees to customers will erode the loyalty of both employees and customers. Without those two groups of people, you have no business.

    Pros

    Ok benefits package, paid time off, hour lunches, voluntary time off if call volume is low. May meet some great friends.

    Cons

    Too many supervisors that do not communicate with each other. Favoritizim from upper management. No room for advancement unless you personally know the hiring supervisors. Advancements based on likeability over actual skills needed to do the job. Management does not listen. People don't say anything for fear they will lose their job. If you want to work here don't go through temp service. If a person that gets hired directly come in the door making what they want you will get at least 2 dollars less and have to work twice as hard if you want to get hired on coming from a temp service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If customer service is such a vital part is the organizations success, and we are the customers first point of contact, then we should be paid like we are and shown a little bit more appreciation. Since we care so much about keeping our customers in their homes, how about paying us what we are worth so we can keep a home as well.
