    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    name recognition used to be on top of its game if you suck up to the right people you can move ahead

    Cons

    too competitive in a negative way-floor is inundated with personal so cut throat mentality is enforced. Doing the right thing for the customer is not the issue, begging for sales is all that is required to make it to the top. To get ahead you have to do shady things to get noticed and then you move up to management without knowing what you are doing and train others to be slimey. doesnt recognize good talent. Going in a bad direction especially in these times. Goals are unatainable for the most part unless you are willing to do the wrong thing for the customer. Loans and lines nearly impossible to get however goals remain the same. LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE for a friendly environement--this isn't the place.

    Advice to Management

    Re think your strategy to the market. You are pushing really hard in a market that doesn't have much else to give. Care about the customer and the emplyee and get back to the basics which made this company an inovater and a decent place to work. Stop driving "solutions" to the grave and bring back morality.

    Pros

    WF offers pleasant work environment, decent benefits package, tuition reimbursement, and advancement opportunities as long as you meet their sales goals. they match 6 percent of your 401K contributions, which is kinda nice, but you'll be able to take their contribution with you (if you decide to leave) only after 5 years with them, which kinda sucks. it seems to be a stable company, so you'd have some kind of work security. i have no heard about anybody being laid off.

    Cons

    sales, sales, sales! seems to be the main concern. of course, they mention customer service and all that, but sales dominate. the commissions seem to be a little low, given the emphasis on sales. and there is little check on sales quality. a lot of customers get screwed with accounts and services that they dont need (but give profit to the bankers)

    Advice to Management

    change commission structure, so bankers would not have an incentive to put customers in the wrong damn accounts.
