    Pros

    Great learning, strong culture, great benefits, good opportunities to move within the company, a great reputation in the financial services industry.

    Cons

    Huge, overly systematic and highly political, often fails to update antiquated systems, too much project recycle, salary adjustments are poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're losing too much talent and your reputation as a great place to work has been significantly tarnished recently. Do more to keep the best people. Thye're expensive to lose and hard to replace

    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.

    Pros

    The company is great to work for, many perks in discounts, retirement match, paid time off, quarterly bonuses, many opportunities to grow within the company. Great coworkers and environment (most of the time...you always have those few who are Debbie Downers)

    Cons

    Be ready to sell products! Its all about the customer and making sure they have EVERY possible product that will help benefit them. If you don't meet your goals, no bonus. After a certain amount of not meeting your quarterly goals, they will write you up if you don't make a change.

    Pros

    Well funded projects, solid plans and leadership, and a good management team for projects.

    Cons

    So huge that it was hard to connect with anyone, and within a year my manager had changed twice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend even more time trying not to look and feel like a huge mess of a company. A lot works well, especially in the IT world.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and pay. Community involvement is huge with this company. Food in Cafeteria is always good and fresh. This company has a diverse culture which is awesome. There is various departments to work for. Management is great because they really care about you and often ask for feedback on how to better their processes.

    Cons

    Parking is too far from building in their operations location. At times there is unrealistic expectations as it relates to sales and processes of loans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I love that there is so much room for growth, Wells Fargo have over 80 lines of business so you can always find something of interest. Recognition is very important to Wells Fargo and you are consistently reminded of the great work you are doing. Competitive pay compared to other financial institutions.

    Cons

    Sales goals are very hard to reach and the pressure to get sales is very strong. The customer service that we provide is always improving and the stress of providing that excellent service can be damaging to how you feel about the work place. Almost always have to use a scripted sales pitch, sounding robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a very busy environment so make sure you are devoting the time to your employees that they deserve for coaching and developing discussions.
