    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits! It feels great to work for a company that has made a very respectable name for itself.

    Cons

    Caution - If you do not like intense sales pressure you would not enjoy working on the retail side of wells fargo. This is at times a "con" because too much sales pressure can lead to an unethical work environment and culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that you constantly reward your employees who do well on a consistent basis! As a manager. i think i would value consistency very much from my employees. If they are a consistently high performing employee it does no good to harass them on the one of two days they do not perform well. I think this is ineffective and a counterproductive tactic because it can discourage that employee, make them feel as though their consistent performance is not appreciated, and can therefore create a subtle resentment towards their manager. I think it is better to focus on the employees who are not performing up to standards.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and move up in the organization. Supportive environment and strong culture. Culture recognizes that team members are key to the business. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Many people work long hours. Large organization so it can be difficult to know people across the company.New government regulations make it cumbersome to get the work done. Frequently dealing with internal and external auditors.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo Dealer Services is a great place to work. My time there was was both a joy and a tremendous opportunity for me to grow my skills in the field of credit analysis. WFDS gave me the resources and support to further my career and the atmosphere was highly conducive to teamwork, innovation and personal growth. All and all a great place to work if you are interested in credit, finance, risk management, portfolio management, contract negotiation, business development and business strategy.

    Cons

    Have to work more weekends than I wanted too and some late nights. Wished the schedule was a little more oriented towards Monday to Friday.
