Pros

LOTS of entry level positions available for those who need a job change. Company, in general, is gay friendly. Company allows team members to volunteer and pays them to do so.

Cons

Management is hand held most of the time; too afraid to make decisions without getting prior approval from Senior Management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your people lead. They're in those positions because you put them there, so let them run their teams. It will be ok.

    Pros

    401k, company match
    dental, vision benefits good,
    it's a job
    there really are no other positives for working there that I could think of.

    Cons

    Wells is nothing like Wachovia. Employees miserable, difference between night and day between Wachovia and Wells Fargo.
    Do not appreciate hard work, good numbers, strong work ethics.
    Want you to slam job products on clients all day.
    no empowerment at all
    managers scared to speak up on your behalf

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take employee ideas outside your local meeting
    look to help employees get ahead in the company
    dont sit at your desk all day googling then ride your employees to work harder
    don't sell out talent to replace with college kids

    Pros

    large company that appears to have a stable foundation. good brand name, strong volunteer/corporate giving presence. good staff on the floor supporting the goals of the company.

    Cons

    Managers seem to ruin the environment. somehow the leadership continues to get in the way of the success of the company. constant rah rah in what a great company we are but no really employee support, no giving back to the employees, benefits get worse each year, no raises and constant reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a good look at the leadership and middle management you have in the company. managers should be better than just cheerleaders - they should be mentors and coaches helping people get to the next step in their career not just the next file on the desk.

    also, people should not be held back just becuase they are performers and told they will be missed too much by the team. they should be rewarded and encouraged to move on to better things and maybe they can help train others how to succeed the same way if put in a leadership role rather than passed over again and again.
