    Pros

    PTO, Paid Holidays, atmosphere can be fun at times depending on management.

    Cons

    All about sales and not as much customer service. Penalties for not reaching "threshold"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we focused on the customers more and less on sales then the company would be amazing as a whole.

    Not challenged in career growth. They hire seasoned workers, over train- need

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years and held 4 different positions, I liked being able to grow by posting for jobs internally or taking on new projects. I always felt like I was able to be a part of a team and work independently when I needed to. I really enjoyed my job!

    Cons

    It can be difficult to have work life balance but you have to take time off when you need it. If you travel you may become burned out and tired of living out of a suitcase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and communicate with your employees, Wells Fargo is a great place to work with employees that work hard and care!

    I worked at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    I felt the company offered good job stability, generous compensation, and a great benefits package, there was room for professional growth.

    Cons

    If there is a con to working here, it would be the sheer size of the company and the resulting rigidity in corporate policies on things like telecommuting, etc.

    Pros

    Once you are part of the company you can have a job for life if you want to. The company goes out of its way to find opportunities.

    Cons

    Even disqualified people with poor performance do stick around so sometimes you can come across employees that really should not be in the company.

    Pros

    The company as a whole understands that you spend the majority of your waking hours at work and with that knowledge tries to make your work environment as convenient as possible.

    Cons

    Most policies and decisions are based off of tenure which, in my opinion, isn't always a direct reflection of knowledge or ability in regards to the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure hiring/promoting process.
