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.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most managers are pretty laid back.

    Cons

    Low pay and raises, promotions, and new postions pay based on percentage of current pay. Need to do a lot of networking to move up. It's all on who you know. Don't accept a lower position to get in to company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they should be paid and have better incentives for employees who do well.
