    Pros

    Good job to start with . This company offers good training and great benefits. Professional environment at all times.

    Cons

    Management is not the best. If you are a mother or a college student with a really demanding career this might not be the job for you. This job requires flexibility, your work schedule may change within a 24 hour notice. For a full time you should know that the bank will need you there 6 days of the week.. You might be entitle to some flex time but at the end of the week you might end up a little stressed out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vacation time is fair, but you might end up changing the days even if you get it approved 6 months earlier.

    Pros

    Of all the wirehouses, WFA is in my opinion the best for FAs. Management doesn't cram product down your throat, and allows you to operate in the best interests of the client. Though they've been encouraging more partnership with the Private Bank, they have not made it mandatory; and in fact I would argue the PB gives you a greater arsenal to reach more HNW clients than you otherwise might.

    Cons

    At the end of the day it's still a wirehouse, which means you're not as free as you might be as an RIA. As WFA is owned by a bank there's always the risk of "Bank Creep," but I don't see the BOA/Merrill struggles happening to us anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the bank available but don't over-reach. Let advisors keep doing what they do best and continue to give them the tools to succeed.

    Treated as a team member

    Cons

    Pay is good, but will be a little less then other investment banks.
    Hours can be really bad based on which team you are placed with.
    Work can become repetitive.

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Hardly any work to do
    Lots of down time

    Cons

    Expect way too many sales from their NY staff, not enough people know about Wells Fargo in NY for us to be selling that much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wells Fargo in california and wells fargo in NY are two completely different things. trying to pressure them to sell 3 series a day which is the same as California (where wells fargo is far more popular) is unreasonable

    Doesn't Recommend
