    Current Employee - Financial Advisor Trainee in Cleveland, OH

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Diverse backgrounds of colleagues. Strong management team. Very good initial training. Great resources/products.

    Cons

    It's a very tough industry to get started from the ground. Quite honestly I have all of the tools I need to be successful and I should be doing better than I am. Any trainee getting started had better have a good network and one hell of a business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on top of the trainees.

    Pros

    Good job stability and they do not micro-manage.

    Cons

    Small compensation increases and holidays inconsistent with insurance industry. Since they are a bank, all departments follow bank holidays.
