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

    Pros

    Being a major conglomerate, there is great training, plenty of opportunities to move up and out to different departments. Great working hours at this location, could choose, so I worked 7:30am to 4:00pm. Well-structured, assignments are clear. Relationship with management was good.

    Cons

    While there are opportunities to move up and through the company, the process can be quite long, and internal hiring is not as easy as they make it seem when HR encourages such things in meetings. Efficiency of the tasks could also be improved, but at least they took our advice.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Branch manager 1 is a hourly position so you don't have to over work yourself. Since its hourly upper leadership wants you to stay as close to 40 hrs as possible

    Cons

    There isn't anything that I would say was a con. I was happy as a branch manager 1 and many people feel the same.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid time off, 401K, and good pay. Management feels organized, and there are absolutely no sales goals/referrals which creates a stress free environment.

    Cons

    When sales goals were in place, the company was dreadful to work for. Now sales are eliminated but the drawbacks are cut in bonuses, and the attitude of the company is shifting into bureaucratic nonsense. Wells Fargo will be a different bank in 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Who even is the upper management?
