    Pros

    Steady employment as long as work is available. I would not suggest this to anyone I know.

    Cons

    The entire organization is unorganized and the people who are in upper management seem to be the problem. Technology releases are sent out without testing and cause problems in more than one program. The people making business decisions do not put any thought behind what they are doing - for example - The Birmingham 3-Step HARP processing site, that has proven success over the past 4 years, was closed and all of the work was transferred to another site. As an underwriter in the refinance program I was able to see the level of understanding in the process between the employees who were replaced in Birmingham, and the understanding of the processors in Iowa. This was a terrible business decision and I am sure the person who was in charge of this should not be in their position as most management who make terrible decisions. Most of the management within the corporation do not deserve their positions and in general do not care about their jobs, they are sitting back collecting money with job security through diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who deserve the promotion and care about their jobs, not the people who make the company look Diverse!!!

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, pretty good quarterly bonuses if your store performs well.

    Cons

    Very competitive, lots of sales pressure. You are expected to say whatever you need to say to make the sale regardless of what is best for the customer. There are lots of bankers talking out of their a** to make sales numbers. Management is incompetent. Upper management is never happy with performance. Very poor work-life balance. As a teller, the job is not worth the stress. Your customers are randomly surveyed about their experience and if they don't give you 5 out of 5 on all questions it is considered a bad survey and counts against the whole store. That means a customer can give a 4 out of 5 on one question and a 5 out of 5 on the rest and the whole survey is considered "bad".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe create more realistic sales goals.
