I have been working at Wells Fargo

Pros

Great benefits and starting pay. Can move up quickly. Feeling of helping people is the best thing about the job.

Cons

Constant sales quota. Always requires staying late because of missed goals. Management always wants more and only recognizes your achievements for the first few moments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not make your employees do things that you say are not professional. Sales are not everything and it is not always best to get the sale.

    - Fast Paced environment
    - Health, Dental, PTO Benefits

    Cons

    - Middle Management bias
    - Micro-managing of all employees
    - Little to no job growth
    - Hostile corporate culture created from fierce competition within bankers
    - No support from Banking store manager or District Manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have banking experience and a manger that will sit down to coach their tellers, Personal and Premier Bankers, also have a District Manager that's willing to sit down to both the manager and personal banker if any conflict occurs or it can go directly to HR. Maybe that's why there's a high employee turnover and clients closing their accounts.

    Pros

    good place to get teller experience before you move on. just make sure you move on before they come up with a reason to fire you.

    Cons

    Suceeding at this company is no longer about how hard you work or how good you do your job. It's about who you know and whether or not you are willing to be a total suck up. no longer seem to care about the customers, its all about the numbers. do or say whatever you have to to get te referals to bankers, even if it is unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont promote based just on referal skills.
