    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!

    Pros

    Great pay policy which treat employees fairly. Switch to Wells fargo was the wost thing that happened. Good work life balance.

    The switch to wells fargo stalled all chances of advancement and promotion. It became all about churning out numbers and selling products people didnt need.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Was great place to work when it was Wachovia! I will rate below based on Wachovia.

    Cons

    When they became Wells Fargo it took a turn for the worse. Everyone was unhappy employees and customers. The company stopped caring about the customer and only cared about the almighty dollar. Overworked, disrespected and unappreciated their employees. (sad)
