    Pros

    Great community minded company that treated employees fairly. Great for families and opportunities for advancement. Would have continued to stay there if not for re-structuring that came with Wells Fargo integration.

    Cons

    Bad fiscal management, which led to the dismissal of our department. Well-intentioned company that tried hard to be great, but failed at actual banking. Had headquarters in Charlotte, which made communication with west coast challenging.

    Pros

    Culture, great compensation package. Wachovia culture was like family! I enjoyed every day at work. Lots of training and growth opportunities!

    Cons

    Decisions could take a while. The hiring process seemed to take forever and bureaucracy was rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Do your due diligence before buying a mortgage company. One bad decision bankrupted the best bank in the industry!
