    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Always busy, never finding something to do.

    Cons

    More people to report to than actually hired by. Everyone, including the clerical staff are demanding things from you. The place is run by minions that have no aspirations in life except to get to 4:30pm to leave. They don’t care about customers nor if we screw up their lives.

     The something to do is typically an unproductive internal procedure that satisfies the need of a compliance or clerk.

    Advice to Management

    Let bankers be bankers and management should help with getting deals done instead of making it a teaching moment
