I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible, opportunities for advancement, great benefits, growing and well established brand/company.

There are tons of different career paths within Wells Fargo and many different ways to advance. The top performers move up quickly while the employees who aren't 100% committed find other gainful employment.

It is a fast paced, ever changing environment. It is hard to stay bored when you focus on the work in front of you. It is a 9am to 6pm job, with Saturdays included.

Cons

Heavy emphasis on daily sales, tedious micromanagement.

Our branch is "under the microscope", so-to-speak, and that microscope focuses down. It is no exaggeration to state that our sales goals are asked about hourly. "Where are you at? (in terms of sales numbers) What are you doing to hit/exceed your goals? What do you have planned for the next day, 5 days, week? etc."

All of these are great questions, but when they are asked no less than 5 times a day, they lose their effectiveness very quickly. Motivation turns to derisive sarcasm and an apprehension to walk near management in fear of being frisked verbally.

    I worked at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Pay, amount of time off from your start date, and discount center

    Cons

    Way to much micro management, stress level, pressure on sales no longer actually helping customers, point system, need FMLA to keep job secure, had a coworker that couldn't even get off for court, never can use PTO because computer system puts you on wait list so you get points.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To work on the micro managing way too much and the pressure of sales.
