    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    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

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits
    Decent Pay
    Excellent Training Program
    Great campus and facility

    Cons

    Challenging to move as a top performer. They want you to be a seat filler
    Very pushy in sales
    Top goals are almost unrealistic of accomplishing without jeopardizing your and company integrity
    Pretty high turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wells makes a-lot of money by saving a-lot of money but increase the pay at-least by $10,000 annually to be competitive with other larger banks like ours and more realistic sales goals

    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.
