    Pros

    If you are in the right branch with affluent customers, you are golden. Pay is competitive, health benefits great.

    Cons

    If you ever need to take a day off with less than two weeks notice, don't think about it.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees' personal life. Work is not the end all be all.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in while in Richmond VA, the team leads, managers and superiors actually cared about their associates. Great team atmosphere. The company relocated in 2008 but that wasnt an option in the drop down.

    Cons

    Once the company merged with Wells Fargo and relocated to St. Louis the atmosphere there was different. The open door policy that existed in Richmond at Wachovia didnt exist in St. Louis at Wells Fargo with the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Humanize yourselves. Treat employees like people and not like robots


  9. I certainly wish circumstances were different and my career still with this company

    I worked at Wachovia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They support further advancement and while not everyone received respectible compensation I know that I did. The benefits package was outstanding and many selections that I certainly took advantage of while there.

    Cons

    Too many disconnected upper managment staff. They really have and had no understanding of what was happening in the lower ranks. Therefore had no idea how to motivate and keep them engaged. The culture was very much an us versus them mentality because while upper management thought they were doing a great job in reality they did nothing but alienate the people the worked for them.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now the company was bought out by Wells Fargo so I can only hope that the new management is better positioned to cure the ills of this company.
