    Pros

    Wachovia was a great company to work for until Wells Fargo took over! The pay is okay and the benefits a great.

    Cons

    SALES!!! SALES!!!! SALES!!! Wachovia used to focus on service but since Wells Fargo took over it's all about shoving products down customers throats!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. I always felt like I gave 110% but it was never enough for upper management.

    Pros

    Wachovia has great benefits, some good people to work with, some great customers, pay is okay, and training is efficient.

    Cons

    Downsides at Wachovia include hard to move up unless you are a favorite, pay could be better, and you don't get much back in terms of yearly pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Make good judgements on who you allow advance, sometimes there are other tellers saving others by picking up their slack so the branch runs more smoothly.

    Pros

    The job has nice benefits. It is a steady paycheck week to week. It offers a good amount of time off

    Cons

    The job can be a little boring. Not something I would want to do for a long time. Again boring

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is fair. It communicates pretty well. Perhaps to many bosses to answer to. Need to trim the fat abit

    Pros

    The friends youll make with the employees, relationships with the customers and the closing of sales for your deals.

    Cons

    Unethical conduct by employees and sometimes certain management personel. Ranging from crossing certain boundaries to get the sales to flat out crimes. Also,

    Advice to Management

    Try not to get as bad as some of the other institutions in nickel and dimeing the customers. Also, tellers tend to be a low point it seems compared to other banks, on average.

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company and benefits

    Cons

    never get time off bc everyone is seniority above you or there is a mtg. and your managers dont do crap they just push all pressure on you. every branch is different but generally working there sucks. many dont leave/quit because the pay is decent in this economy.

    Advice to Management

    get a degree and learn to respect ee's they are you best assets

    Pros

    Great people and a very diverse group.

    Cons

    Once your inside, getting to the next level proves difficult even when you meet all the qualifications and have the education.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to current staff who meets and obviously would excell in other positions.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Being on the sales end of jobs allows for more control of your work schedule. As long as sales goals are met you can dictate how many hours you are putting in. If you're in a good branch with a good FCM, it's much easier to meet and exceed sales goals.

    Cons

    Illogical sales deadlines. Communication from the top could be better. Trying something completely new when regular system already works. Each year they raise the incentive requirements. Sometimes it doesn't feel like senior management has a good handle on the local market and they expect you to surpass goals even if it's not realistic.

    Advice to Management

    If a system isn't broke, don't fix it.
