    Cross Sell or Unemployment, Wells Fargo Only Wants Employees To Sell Customers

    I have been working at Wells Fargo (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits (but cost creeping up and coverage creeping down each year), Good Morale Both Management and Coworkers, and Honestly a Great Company.

    Cons

    Cross Selling is the only focus now, firing employees who are great at their job in every area that should matter but if the cross selling results are not meeting the ever ridiculous quota (which continues to rise) than you may not have a job next month. Expectation for customers to say yes to cross selling, leaving you with no real control of your job security. Stress!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross sell expectations are going to destroy the customers experience after all tenured employees are fired. All that will be left are employees that cross sell and could not resolve a true complex issue.

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

    Pros

    You control your own destiny based on your sales performance. Great to work for a company that encourages career growth. You can move up quickly in the company if you're motivated and hit your sales goals. You are compensated sales and service bonus's when you reach your goals. Great benefits including medical, dental, vision etc. Paid vacation and sick days. Offer 401K plan. Great training. You generally meet and work with great people.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Pressure to sale can be overwhelming at times. Sales goals can be difficult to obtain. Micro management often occurs. Company over emphasizes providing customer service. Certain managers fail to develop their team members. Work environment can be cut throat at times because of the aggression to achieve sales goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micro management. Make sales goals a little more realistic. Increase salary

    Pros

    Gave paid time off, and also had health benefits. Also very lenient when it comes to re-adjusting your schedule due to emergencies.

    Cons

    If you like the retail life style then there are not really any cons. The only con I can think of was that I was hired as a 20 hour teller but they would make me work 35 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add extra employees so that those who are hired for an x amount of hours do not have to work more than they are hired to do.
