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

Pros

flexible schedule
paid time off: 3 weeks paid vacation/paid holidays/sick days/personal days
bonuses
experience
knowledge gained

Cons

lots of micromanagement
now at least they put on the app. that you should expect this constant checking up to see how you are doing in your sales etc. overall sales numbers went from 80 to 280 in just span of 2 years.

Advice to Management

Less micro management we know what to do your just anxious and nervous because your getting your necks breathed down by your boss and their boss is harping down theirs its how it goes at Wells.

    Pros

    The benefits package is very good, 6% match on the 401(k), good healthcare options. They do tuition reimbursement and promote from within.

    Cons

    Everything else. In the Retail Banking world, you're incentivized to be dishonest to the customer by selling on half-truths and out-right lies. The more you sell, the faster you're promoted. The faster you're promoted, the faster you lose your soul. Used car salespeople get a bad rap but they're nothing compared to your local Wells Fargo Personal Banker; especially if they have more than 6 months of tenure. Don't touch this company with a 10-foot pole!

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment that promotes unity and ethics. Eliminate the insipid WOW! requirement and make it so when a customer gives you a 4 out of 5, it isn't the same as getting a 0 out of 5. Hold your employees to a higher standard of ethics and actually crack down hard on those that fail to adhere; rather than just providing lip service and doing nothing (they usually get promoted). There are many more, it's just too much to type!
