    15 years starting with First Union Bank

    Business Systems Consultant (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsLarge company with numerous opportunities for personal grow, good benefits including a 401k plan and time off policies. Encourages community service participation. Great customer focus and values.

    ConsLittle too much internal politics and pay raises are minimal, although I have got a pay raise even through the downturn in the economy. Budget balance sheet wins over loyalty of the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't tolerate politics and silo building.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wells Fargo cares about their employees.

    Lead Teller (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsThere are so many opportunities to learn and grow within the company. There is a lot of support through employee services and district management. They took care of me when I had a non work related injury and had to take leave. They care about our happiness and well being as employees.

    ConsRaises are hard to come by and not significant compared to cost of living increases. Healthcare benefits are not great, too expensive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt was really hard to get my foot in the door, 3 months. It seems like getting a job at entry level shouldn't be so hard. My store has been short staffed for over a year. I could not even begin to afford healthcare, I still rely on state medical assistance for myself and my family.

    Great potential for growth. Stick and no carrot retail culture.

    Personal Banker II – Registered (Current Employee)

    ProsTheir base pay is very competitive with other banks. Benefits are above average. If you have a good network of lower management relationships and meet your quarterly goals you can move up fast. They are also a large bank with many departments you can find the right place if you search.

    ConsThe culture of the company is focused on reaching goals, which have built a strong bank. However, the pressure can be so intense that you can begin to struggle to find satisfaction in your job. I have performed well above average for my position for years. It has been a long time since I have felt that management would trust that I will do well without constant micro management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome leaders. It is really easy with all the government oversight and corporate growth pressure to put pressure on those under you. Managers can oversee and make sure things show well on reports. Leaders inspire employees and customers to be better. They also are willing to stand behind their team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
