    Pros

    The people I worked with were fantastic. Great location, outstanding cafeteria, and the work kept us busy without giving us non-stop headaches. All in all, a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    None that I can think of right now.

    I have been working at Wachovia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great peers, nice incentives, and easy to understand products when it came time to sell. Location very close to home.

    Cons

    heavy emphasis on selling, and no such thing as bankers' hours. Upper management gave lots of pressure for branch to meet its goals.

    Advice to Management

    don't forget where you came from, and be more present to touch base with employees.

    Pros

    Comp plan, sales does not report to branch manager, provide tools to succeed and exceptional training, allow employees to easily transfer between departments.

    Cons

    Work life balance, have to work occasional weekends, went out of business, not flexible considering improvements that can be made to current processes

    Advice to Management

    Promote people that have demonstrated the ability to deliver and not based on how long someone has been there. Be more open to process changes.
