    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They promote from within. Good benefits including health, 401(K) match, and ample vacation time. Huge focus on relationships with commercial customers.

    Cons

    Not as flexible with work arrangements as the position would allow. Raises have been minimal in the past 4-6 years, primarily just cost of living adjustments, even for top-rated employees.Credit matrices could push more responsibility to the RM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When setting credit policies and credit approval matrices, seek input from your relationship managers. More responsibility could be pushed down to the RCM, LPM, and RM. Provide more support for employees looking to further their professional education, both with internal classes and reimbursing for external classes.

    Pros

    great 401k plan, very flexible with time and able to work anywhere in the US. great learning experience about banking, depending on the branch.

    Cons

    constant turnover, constant push for sales everyday. micromanagment is constant everywhere. you have to think in terms of opportunites for the bank versus opportunities for the customer.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo provides all the resources you would need to be successful at this job. All you need is the drive to succeed and they will get you there.

    Cons

    The sales goals are high and sometimes may seem daunting but they can be achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down goals into small bit size pieces so that they don't seem so large and hard to get to.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    awesome workplace environment
    cliche but the people actually are awesome
    decent pay for work responsibilities

    Cons

    sometimes could get a little slow, the main reason for this which an intern must understand is that your direct managers cant necessarily invest a massive amount of time training you up for a position when you will be gone in just a few months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, wells fargo internship program was absolutely awesome, if you get the opportunity, absolutely take it
