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

    Pros

    The hours for the Welcome Call dept were awesome, Just got off too late. Wish they would have 10hr shifts that started earlier than 8AM. The 4 days a week, 10 hour days were good. Because we'd get a 3 day weekend.

    Cons

    Working until 9PM, promotions weren't happening they should have been for employees who are proving themselves.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits! Wells fargo does have amazing benefits and gives employees a considerable amount PTO. Very large company so if transferring to another city or state depending on your position is possible.

    Cons

    Wells fargo hardly ever promotes within. They look for other internal employees out of district or external candidates before they will hire within. Poor customer service experience, wells fargo forgets that as financial institution we should without a doubt show customers we value their business regardless of how much "profit" they bring us. Also, employees are expected to work hard and go above and beyond but pay raises and bonuses are very minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within like promised. Hire managers that are actually qualified! Show employees more appreciation and offer better pay,

    Licensed Banker

    Former Employee - Licensed Personal Banker  in  Denton, TX
    Former Employee - Licensed Personal Banker in Denton, TX

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, except toward the end of a sales period (ie. month, quarter and year). Learned more than I realized while there; took leaving to see some of these lessons come into the fold. Overall, good starter job.

    Cons

    Overall, there leadership on the retail side was terrible. Most companies have figured out already that just because an individuals sales are good, it does not mean that they will be a good leader for a sales team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They know what they are doing. Although much of the retail leadership is terrible, Wells Fargo is still killing it from a profitability standpoint.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Pretty good salary.

    Cons

    You have to be OK with looking the other way at unethical practices and sales techniques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. We all discuss and sign documents in regards to honesty and selling with integrity. But management always seems to be OK with selling customers products they don't need. I would try to address issues of customers being mislead or flat out lied to and management never really cared. As long as you are hitting your numbers here, it doesn't matter how. No one talks about it but that is the culture here. Ask any Wells Fargo employee, it is difficult to hit your numbers while doing the right thing here. It can be done but the culture at Wells Fargo is to do it the easy way. The end result is all that matters here.
