Pros

Name a student job that offers:
- Professional career
- PTO
- Paid sick days
- Bonus pay
- Competitive pay
- 401k

Cons

Like all jobs, there are always some cons. Here's some for working in my position:
- Some very BAD customer experience
- Holds a risk, since it's financially involved
- Tight schedule offered (it's a bank)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your tellers at times. You may have more experience, but they deal with more customers, and have a more "updated" sense of what's going on with customer relations. They know some customers prefer XX behavior, rather than YY behavior, and it was a bit senseless to "program" your tellers to repeat the exact same words over and over to all customers.

    Extremely competent management team. Outstanding training. Great opportunities for those that exceed high production goals.

    Intense sales culture. Very competitive atmosphere. Little to no sense of team work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's not for everyone, but that's a good thing.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    More autonomy on investment side than bank side. Constant stream of leads from banking customer base. Generally very nice people to work with, regardless of the line of business. Conservative posture in lending and banking has made Wells very strong through tough economy. Wells avoided most of the risky business of other financial institutions. Warren Buffet is major shareholder :-) The majority of clients are very nice and feel a strong attachment to Wells.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement currently from an associate role to an advisor role unless you have significant prior sales experience or perhaps a book of business to bring in from another firm, otherwise you have to get lucky and get the nod from an established financial advisor to come on as a partner. Don't feel there is any real career path planning for associates. It's easy to get burned out after a while since the work that is done every day is mostly servicing accounts, so it gets a bit monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A program should be designed for sales associates that clearly delineates a career path that one can look forward to. Better training should be instituted to help transition promising associates to full production finacial advisor roles.
