Great company to work for if you're a competitive person who enjoys sales

I have been working at Wells Fargo

2. Competitive company
3. One of America's Great Companies
4. Receive incentives for sales
5. Depending on management, Awesome!

Wells Fargo is a great company that has opportunities abound, the company is so solid I am proud to say that I work for Wells Fargo.

Cons

The only con that I can think of is that people who are not competitive or strive to be the best, like myself, may not love this job as much as me. The constant talk of sales may wear on some, but if you approach it as providing solutions to your customers, like we are doing, then it's a cakewalk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only thing I can say that I see as a problem down the road is that unless we keep coming out with new and better products, we may possibly oversatuarate the market with our products. Certain district managers need to understand that there are branches that do not receive as much traffic and cannot stand a chance to accomplishing as many sales as another branch that may receive twice the traffic and opportunity.

    I worked at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Great benefits, great senior leadership (CEO, CFO,etc.).

    Cons

    Retail banking at Wells Fargo is a true grind. All they care about are numbers and sales. Managers will look the other way when people are doing unethical things to get sales as long as they don't get caught. No interest in developing good, long term employees. Extremely hard to get out of retail and they don't teach any transferrable skills unless you want to be a used car salesman. I think if the executive level management knew what was going on in retail they would throw up in their mouths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nuture employees and develop them. Its a waste to pay and train them and not develop them into future leaders.
