    Retail Banker/Sales Platform

    Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsHours were great, no weekends, no late nights. Manager and co-workers were what kept me there. My bank was bought by Wells Fargo so I did not have much of a choice. Health insurance was pretty good, a lot better than other programs offered at other banks.

    ConsStrong sales performance requirements. Very pushy in terms of getting sales. If you don't get them be prepared to get chewed by upper management. If you are not in the top 10% in sales metrics do not expect to go anywhere within the bank unless you know somebody high up the ladder.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very difficult to find the truth

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsYour ability to serve customers and comunity is fun

    ConsPromtion after the Acq of Wachovia is limited, and white males lcok down promtoion opportunites

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe truthful about your diversity and hiring! Where are the senior executives of color in the International Bank or Commercial Banking, or US Corporate Banking... The marketing to diverse professionals is good, but hiring, retaining, and promtion is not a truthful effort...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you can ignore the politics, it's a good job that has good benefits

    Depends on the group and your manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood vacation and benefits. Some very smart people.

    ConsSome very bad managers and unless it comes from senior management, it doesn't happen. Lots of siloed managers who don't see the forest for the trees. Lots of micromanagement going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Solid conservative company.

    Marketing Database Consultant (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood work-life balance, lots of opportunity for growth and movement, vertically or laterally. With economic recovery, our division is definitely expanding.

    I'm a technical (mostly) worker, and looking to switch industries, so take my review with a grain of salt if you're really into FS.

    ConsBig company, can lose career focus if you stay fixed on the minutia and company processes. Benefits have degraded down to average.

    Good training, good exposure, and strong credit culture.

    Vice President (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsStrong credit culture. Good place to start a career in lending/banking because of good career development opportunities and credit training through the Bank's FAP/CMTP programs.

    ConsBureacratic. A lot of administration and reporting. Pay is below industry averages for lending groups. Sales goals are difficult to accomplish.
