    Pros

    They really advance from within- if you do your job well an work hard they notice

    Cons

    It's very hard to do well- they make it very difficult and just almost our of reach

    Advice to Management

    Make goals and expectations more attainable - people who make the goals sit in board rooms and make it up- if they were a PB then they have lost touch with what it is really like - it's the hardest Job at WF

    Pros

    There are a few good hard-working people. There are interesting things about the banking industry. I know not to bank there.

    Cons

    Do not rock the boat culture. Which translates into very little, if any accountability. Managers have a great ability to completely ignore problems dealing with personnel. Which sounds exagerrated, but multiple managers did nothing about a contractor that slept most of every day for 18 months. Have never witnessed so many people so completely comfortable doing absolutely nothing. First place I was physically unable to work because of all of the continual outside distractions. Witnessed a contractor get hired full-time after he had spent the previous months doing mostly nothing but having other people over to talk. Worked with another manager that had no clear goals, but would continually send multiple people off in circles. Extremely, and usually unnecessarily so, difficult work, where I was going 100 MPH every second of every day. Very questionable methods of analyzing results. Continually found major problems with processes and data that should have been taken care of long ago, but were not even considered. Gave notice and offered up to 8 weeks to help in transition. Contract was ended the following day, contrary to previous conversation I had with manager. Apparently this is common. Some managers could use some people skills. Most everyone is mostly concerned with their own comfort. Zero consideration for conditions for contractors. No sir. I didn't like it.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it simply is the case that it is not worth the effort. There is nothing that is going to change.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good and fairly reasonable. Most coworkers are great to work with and genuinely want to help.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. If you speak out against something that is not right you are retaliated against and you will ultimately lose your job.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Forced to make sales goals or be fired. Too much stress and pressure . Not worth the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Year people fairly and with respect. Don't put so much emphasis on sales and more on customer service. Sales will come on its own if you treat the employees and customers well.

    Pros

    Recognition is a huge thing with the company, which is always such a great feeling to get from the workplace. Full on support whenever you need it

    Cons

    Very stressful when it comes to sales/referrals. Told while going into the position it was a customer service job, and through training told multiple times it wasn't a sales job. During huddles it's all they talk about as well as getting hourly emails with updates of your sales stats.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about the actual position and make sure people know what they are signing up for. Other than that, always great to get full support and helping me grow my career.

    Pros

    great position great pay great everything(besides employees)

    Cons

    Manager would make you do personal banker work and your numbers needed to hit would be for only business. Then when you wouldn't be able to hit your business numbers because you can only work personal you'd get an improvement plan. After the fact if you brought the situation up to your manager she'd say unfortunately we're short staff you're going to have to help.

    Advice to Management

    If you want people in your role and be successful in there role allow them to be able to do it.
