    Well know it Wells Fargo but, it's one of the top banks in the country so, there are great benefits, pay and long lasting friendships.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons really about this company.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I would advise to management would be little understanding when family's have someone with a potential fatal illness.

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

    Pros

    They provided good training. I worked in a busy branch so it was a fast-paced environment. I liked it because it was never boring and the day flew by.

    Cons

    Teller manager was not flexible with scheduling. It was a mission to schedule doctor appointments. Progressing in the company was not an easy thing to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more growth opportunities to current employees that want to better themselves.

    Pros

    Systems and products were strong. Benefits were good

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, Getting things done was difficult. Mediocracy was celebrated.

    Advice to Management

    In your rush to centralize functions, don't "dumb down" jobs in the field. Your customer-facing people know the client base the best. Give them the authority they need to look a customer in the eyes and do what they need to do to get the job done.

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

    Pros

    Good opportunity for broad range of skills and background; Open and tolerant of different backgrouds and cultures in certain positions. Compensatyion lower to mid range for most positions A company this large is full of change and opportunity but not a place to build along term career after 5 or so years move on.

    Cons

    compensation under constant annual modification and review Metrix driven bonus and commissions are always extremely demanding and designed to be very very difficult to achieve. Almost impossible to recieve above avg ratings such as "meet and exceed". Performance reviews are very tough and even unfair and forget about "discussing or changing" no such thing. You will be part of the CYBOG

    Advice to Management

    none
