    Pros

    A lot of Exposure to the finance industry

    Cons

    District manager out of touch of what really goes on and does not motivate. Talks down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate the district managers and store managers... Some of them are just a title and not very good at managing.

    I worked at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Big company, always hiring in some department

    Cons

    Seemed to be a lot of micromanaging among leadership. Other than that, it was only a good job to have while I was going to school.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked closely with, that's it! Going to miss some really good people. I was desperately trying to get out of retail, I was three days away from finding out if I got the position I really wanted. Kind of ironic.

    Cons

    2 years w/ company. Top performer finishing top 1 and 2 in all of Denver consistently. I was recently terminated for a false accusation and I'm going to fight to clear my name. I had just finished training to become a business specialist. High pressure sales of awful products with NO compensation!!! Horrible culture and hiring tactics. Advancement is slow. Too many micro managers. Treat customers well to their face, then steal their money when they aren't looking. No recognition for leaders. If you get on their bad side, look out!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your sales team. Lower the metrics for bonuses. Oh, if you want sales people, then teach sales tactics!!

    Former Employee - Business Banking Specialist in Commerce City, CO

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Online Service, Friendly Tellers, The idea of what they should stand for is excellent,

    Cons

    Constant intentions of Adding, Selling, Pushing products, & promotion of products Customers do Not need. In an attempt to get more accounts, or more products so the bankers can make daily goals. The company doesn't put the needs of the Customer first. They believe that the more a customer has the more difficult it will be to leave. And the fee's on the banking side are outrageous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly and Honestly put each customers needs 1st, & stop pushing products to customers that they do not need in these extremely difficult economic times. Stop putting increased goals on your banking staff, so they are not in a must sell situation, and are blind to how they can truly help your customer base.
