    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits Big name to put on your resume

    Cons

    Terrible atmosphere Micro management Limited opportunities for career growth High sales pressure Poor sales quality and dishonesty is common Cutthroat mentality

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement and sales pressure drove me to leave the company. I waited a few months after my resignation to submit this review to let everything in my mind settle. Coaching by positive reinforcement as opposed to using fear, bullying, threatening, and demeaning employees at all levels would increase retention and morale. I would love to see Wells Fargo live up to its vision and values, but from my experience it has a Ways to go.


  3. It's kind of like selling your soul for money.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo pays most of it's employees really well. The work is rewarding as a loan officer. Some of my co-workers were wonderful people and good friends.

    Cons

    For me, the biggest con was my management. My direct manager was demanding, and tried to scare me into selling product everyday. Sadly, I was happiest when she was not in the office; which happened way too often. Also, my regional manager was totally unethical in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and manage them how they need and want to be managed. Do a better job of empowering your employees to reach the big, bad, corporate's expectations of each employee.

    Pros

    Worked well with my schedule Very friendly enviornment and great work atmosphere Able to balance work and school very well

    The hardest part of the job for me was just having to stand for 8 hours in a row without sitting. Killer on your feet!

    I felt like the front desk always did better when we were not micromanaged.

    Pros

    The company is structured for advancement. Great benefits (medical, dental, retirement...) and paid time off.

    Cons

    Difficult to break out of the retail sales side. No value was given to education on the retail side. Those who sold the most advanced regardless of other aspects.


  9. A bank is a bank

    Pros

    Good benefits and because it is such a large, well known bank, it is a great resume builder as well.

    Cons

    Everyone says high sales pressure, and although that is true, I don't think it is as excessive as it is made out to be.

    Good benefits, ok pay, upward potential, not something I have to worry about at home

    Cons

    weighty sales pressure, and your success early on can rely on having a good manager

    Make the training more practical and relevant to the financial products that are popular now
