    Pros

    Well know it Wells Fargo but, it's one of the top banks in the country so, there are great benefits, pay and long lasting friendships.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons really about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing I would advise to management would be little understanding when family's have someone with a potential fatal illness.

    Pros

    They provided good training. I worked in a busy branch so it was a fast-paced environment. I liked it because it was never boring and the day flew by.

    Cons

    Teller manager was not flexible with scheduling. It was a mission to schedule doctor appointments. Progressing in the company was not an easy thing to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more growth opportunities to current employees that want to better themselves.

    Pros

    Systems and products were strong. Benefits were good

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, Getting things done was difficult. Mediocracy was celebrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In your rush to centralize functions, don't "dumb down" jobs in the field. Your customer-facing people know the client base the best. Give them the authority they need to look a customer in the eyes and do what they need to do to get the job done.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for broad range of skills and background; Open and tolerant of different backgrouds and cultures in certain positions. Compensatyion lower to mid range for most positions A company this large is full of change and opportunity but not a place to build along term career after 5 or so years move on.

    Cons

    compensation under constant annual modification and review Metrix driven bonus and commissions are always extremely demanding and designed to be very very difficult to achieve. Almost impossible to recieve above avg ratings such as "meet and exceed". Performance reviews are very tough and even unfair and forget about "discussing or changing" no such thing. You will be part of the CYBOG

    I have been working at Wachovia part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The paid-time-off, friendly coworkers, and great managers.

    Cons

    The policies, inflexible hours, sales-pushiness, stress for lack of staffing, and no proper on-site training development for beginners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand how the level of staffing can affect customer service and smooth operations. Don't expect to have low investing in training, low staffing, high sales goals expectation, 100% customer service, and a fast experience. Do not throw your new tellers in a drive-thru with four lanes by themselves until they are prepared.
