    Pros

    Time off after three years is three weeks. Nice

    Ask for what you want in pay. My peers were making 10-15k more a year than me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having favorites and focus on your entire team.

    Pros

    Good hard working people who pride themselves on doing a good job and they deserve better.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership (RAMP-Management) within the division or direction. It's like the decision makers have little to no clue about the mission or how to treat team members

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take yourselves so seriously you really don't have a clue about the real world or how to manage.

    Best technology, never got my disability benefits!

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The technology is no doubt a cut above the rest. I have worked at another bank since leaving Wells, and they were so far behind the times. I really missed how fast the computer programs were and I LOVED the Panini (MICR reader).

    Cons

    Some employees in the HR department, and ALL of the managers/district managers I worked for were SO unethical.

    I had extreme medical complications due a muscle disease I have, so on doctor's orders I went on disability leave. I was on leave for 9 months - and NEVER GOT DISABILITY BENEFITS! I literally was bed ridden, and Wells Fargo (who's disability benefits are paid through Liberty Mutual) said I was not disabled! Even my own doctor appealed their denials TWICE, and they still did not pay me one cent of what I should have been paid. That finally led to my departure from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your tellers. We may be the bottom of the totem pole - but we are the first (and sometimes only!) person the customer will interact with on their visit into the branch.

    When you promise and employee disability benefits, please actually deliver on that promise. Being on disability is tough. Not being paid for close to a year when I have two kids and bills to pay does not make me a happy camper.

    Pros

    The money was okay I was hired as part time but I worked 45 hours plus
