Former Employee - Marketing Manager in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Marketing Manager in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work/life balance
Salary
Benefits
Lots of really smart, motivated people
Some work can be great, some mind-numbing
There are some great divisions to work with, and some awful ones. The good ones are great, and the awful ones are petty, political, and focused on keeping leadership happy instead of focusing on their work or the customer.

Cons

Politics
Too big to move quickly
Very hard to implement change
Too many excuses ("Legal won't let us" "we've always done it this way")

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your 2-downs. They have management's perspective as well as Team Member's perspective. They see and hear things you don't, and have the customer's experience in mind, not the bottom line.

    Current Employee - Financial Advisor Trainee in Cleveland, OH

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

    Pros

    Diverse backgrounds of colleagues. Strong management team. Very good initial training. Great resources/products.

    Cons

    It's a very tough industry to get started from the ground. Quite honestly I have all of the tools I need to be successful and I should be doing better than I am. Any trainee getting started had better have a good network and one hell of a business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on top of the trainees.

    Former Employee - Financial Advisor in West Melbourne, FL

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo Advisors provided very good entry training to new advisors, including test preparation, sales training and industry-specific knowledge. The branch manager was supportive and available, the tech support was good, and the back-office research was excellent. At the time I was there, there were no proprietary products that I can recall, so brokers were free to choose their offerings.

    Cons

    In any brokerage, everyone is a competitor, so office politics exists. Seniority and production drive the boat, and it's all about the money coming in. New brokers are expected to do a lot of cold calling, and the hours are long. Be ready to give up evenings and Saturdays for cold calling and client appointments.
