I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Run it like you own it attitude. Opportunities to make significant impacts to the business. Had the opportunity to learn, build my career and build a great team. Committed to providing a great customer experience.

Cons

Culture has changed since Wachovia acquisition. Not as innovative and more political. The company is so big but they are still trying to operate like a mid-sized one. They won't necessarily mandate certain systems or processes which would help customers, employees and shareholders.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Executive management is good at communicating but line of business execs are not.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is focused on developing employees into excellent sales people, and most have been bankers within Wells Fargo (or Wachovia depending on where you are). My manager frequently offers immediate feedback on our customer interactions, both positive and negative, to help the team grow and learn. Compensation is reasonable and benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    It seems like Wells Fargo has pretty high turnover, which is to be expected in banking, but employees are moved up and around to different positions within the business very frequently. Also, though the on the job development is excellent, the actual training needs to be organized differently. Classroom sessions either need to be more in depth, or cut out completely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve the training sessions. Sitting in a classroom and having other employees act as customers is not effective, and it wastes time. More time should be spent becoming comfortable with the software and products.
