    Current Employee - Personal Banker I (SAFE) in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid training in headquarter before you work

    Cons

    *very basic salary
    *store managers are sales-driven only
    *terrible ethical employees among them playing dirty political games to win more sales
    *stressful sales job designed for high school graduates
    *mean, money driven company train you to be a greedy liar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not just heads to open accounts and credit cards for you. Wells Fargo proves it that they only care about money but not customer service. The more money customer has, the better fake service it give out. Trust me you can make a personal banker in WF to lick a millionaire's shoe.

  10. IT Support - As good or bad as the manager and management tree you work under.

    Current Employee - IT Support in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - IT Support in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Time off - They lump both sick leave and vacation together which left me with 5-6 weeks PTO per year. The management trees I worked under really worked us to death but I had friends in different management trees that had managable workloads.

    Cons

    I worked for weak management that said yes to everything. During the financial crisis there was a hiring freeze and reorgs so we wound up supporting many more users with fewer people. They really worked us to death but that is because of the management I was under.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your underlings.
