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

    Pros

    No sales goals.
    Not much to say here:

    Cons

    Just activity goals to branch network. Leadership is the poorest I have ever seen., They treat you like a puppet. They say your option matters, but it diesn’t. District Managers is lackluster bunch of Moran’s. Management.

    Advice to Management

    It’s a cult of poor senior leadership and management. And management traats employees like crap.

    Tim Sloan wake up your part of the problem.
