    I worked at Wachovia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corner Office; lots of branch traffic so goal attainment was not a challenge; benefits; Work independently (away from Manager); Able to build a community and work as a Team with branch employees.

    Cons

    pay too low; penalized for goal attainment--Goals DOUBLED after goals for the year were met; burnout waiting to happen

    Advice to Management

    Don't saddle your reps who are exceeding their goals with ridiculously high goals. You will burn them out and they will seek other employment.
