    Pros

    Management cares about you. They look to ensure personal and career development, opportunities to learn new things, and provide opportunities to advance via other avenues if the current one is restricted.

    Cons

    Too many calls and meetings where nothing is decided or no clear goal is set, thereby wasting a lot of time that could be better used on achieving results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Opportunities for growth; I was promoted within my first month employed. Benefits were good. Opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    Upper management out of touch with those below them. Relaxed work environment led to some issues between personnel; gossip, slacking off, etc.

    Pros

    Great training, benefits, managers. Lot of Overtime. Great Incentives.

    Cons

    When you get laid off they are not good at getting you into another dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you lay people off at least attempt to place your good workers in an another position instead of making them start over with the company

    Pros

    I've had the pleasure of working with some great managers at Wells Fargo who have all supported my growth and career over the past 7 years. Overall, I've been extremely happy and satisfied with this company.

    Cons

    As with any big company, I think finding the right people to network with can be a challenge, but overall, manageable and attainable.

    Pros

    The people you work with directly could be fun and you'll end up feeling at home.
    Most managers make an effort to help their teams and push people threw with careers.

    Cons

    Some times the bonuses were confusing and id say that the surveys all ready put the team in a position to get a bad rating. Credit Union Tellers make about $2 more on average if not more, Bankers get paid $5 more.
