Pros

A Chance for advancement as long as you never make waves.

Cons

Immature managers, outrageous goals, and waste of employee's time every morning for a huddle.

Advice to Management

Promote based on numbers and service, or on one or the other. Some people work too hard to achieve high numbers just to watch someone else who doesn't try get promoted as well.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    More autonomy on investment side than bank side. Constant stream of leads from banking customer base. Generally very nice people to work with, regardless of the line of business. Conservative posture in lending and banking has made Wells very strong through tough economy. Wells avoided most of the risky business of other financial institutions. Warren Buffet is major shareholder :-) The majority of clients are very nice and feel a strong attachment to Wells.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement currently from an associate role to an advisor role unless you have significant prior sales experience or perhaps a book of business to bring in from another firm, otherwise you have to get lucky and get the nod from an established financial advisor to come on as a partner. Don't feel there is any real career path planning for associates. It's easy to get burned out after a while since the work that is done every day is mostly servicing accounts, so it gets a bit monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    A program should be designed for sales associates that clearly delineates a career path that one can look forward to. Better training should be instituted to help transition promising associates to full production finacial advisor roles.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    National footprint.....one of the last big banks still standing.

    Cons

    Leadership does not live up to the "printed" materials re: associate engagement. Additonally, the organizational structure does not clearly give ownership over specific business units, which leads to a lack of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the business models and create some ownership throughout the organization....your customer will then really come first and the organization will then be "world class"
