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

    Pros

    The technology is no doubt a cut above the rest. I have worked at another bank since leaving Wells, and they were so far behind the times. I really missed how fast the computer programs were and I LOVED the Panini (MICR reader).

    Cons

    Some employees in the HR department, and ALL of the managers/district managers I worked for were SO unethical.

    I had extreme medical complications due a muscle disease I have, so on doctor's orders I went on disability leave. I was on leave for 9 months - and NEVER GOT DISABILITY BENEFITS! I literally was bed ridden, and Wells Fargo (who's disability benefits are paid through Liberty Mutual) said I was not disabled! Even my own doctor appealed their denials TWICE, and they still did not pay me one cent of what I should have been paid. That finally led to my departure from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your tellers. We may be the bottom of the totem pole - but we are the first (and sometimes only!) person the customer will interact with on their visit into the branch.

    When you promise and employee disability benefits, please actually deliver on that promise. Being on disability is tough. Not being paid for close to a year when I have two kids and bills to pay does not make me a happy camper.

    Pros

    Job security i.e. if you are an aggressive salesman.The benefits and the paid time-off are great as well

    Cons

    The company values its employees as long as they are go-getters. But you may loose your job if you have a bad 1 or 2 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The money was okay I was hired as part time but I worked 45 hours plus

    Cons

    Solutions pretty much forcing a customer to do something they didn't wanna do and it wouldn't help them out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your tellers like trash when they work hard for you.

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

    Pros

    I don't think there is even a pro, really. You can have a job with them and get paid. Basically it.

    Cons

    For every little mistake you do, your manager will like you less and less. I wasn't being trained correctly and I really didn't feel like I was a part of this branch's "clique", which I didn't want to be a part of. They even made it known that I wasn't part of their clique. It was hard to try to keep up with responsibilities when they really didn't show an interest in helping you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to stop pressuring people to make sales. It was awful having to resort to calling my parents to get a sale and my mom even said, "no".
