I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It's INCREDIBLY laid back (at least at my branch). I work in a motorbank branch. We mainly do drive up banking but we also have a small lobby and our main lobby branch is up the hill a parking lot away. Lot's of recognition and appreciation. Good hours.

Cons

The pay is FAR below what they could afford to pay us, since it's the biggest bank in the country.
There are sales incentives but working at a drive up they are impossible to attain.
I make 500 every 2 weeks working about 35 hours.
The products we offer are old and boring, and everyone already has at least some form of them.
We have to send 4 ARTS (sales referrals) a day minimum, and if you don't they will nag and nag the hell out of you until you do.

Advice to Management

Get new products! Pay commission on ARTS, not just solutions. Promotions based on leadership, not just sales!

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large corporation which does offer benefits, but they are not attractive

    Cons

    Management seems to have their head in the clouds thinking they have their employees best interests at heart when if you talk to actual employees in the working positions, you find a less than satisfied workforce across the country and particularly in the PNW and West Coast region. Very poor balance of Work/Life across the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Take your head out of the clouds and stop thinking this is a superior company and that you are well respected. Take a good look at the Core Values and practice what you are trying to declare you are.
