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 Management

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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    There is a very strong corporate culture and name recognition. Accomplishments are publicly recognized and everyone is expected to work hard. It may seem very "rah-rah" but having now worked at a company with no corporate culture, I can appreciate the Wells environment.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected and the line between work and personal time is often blurred. Feedback to management is often not recognized or used for improvements. It is difficult to complete a long term project because the tenure of the sponsor (senior management) is usually only about a year, so priorities shift often.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within when senior managers leave. Currently, when a new senior manager is brought in, he or she replaces all the direct reports and projects and initiatives get off track.
