    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.

    A bank is a bank

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time

    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.

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

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good amount of time off. Good people to work with. They have a product that I can believe in so it was easy to sell.

    Cons

    Very aggressive with sales goals, in fact too aggressive for the pay. Lots of Saturdays working. They encourage sales practices that to some may seem unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees the competitive advantage again...
