    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good pay, nice physical environment

    Cons

    Too much stress, like high school the cliques abound, its not how great you work its who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what your Team Leaders are doing. They frequently belittle and harass the employees. If you want advancement, you need the in crowd to support you. I've seen employees that should have been fired for tardiness promoted into the management program. Too much pressure on associates. Management only cares about the numbers, and the employees are expendable.

    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
