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

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees.

    The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available.

    Highly engaged and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time.

    Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company.

    No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

    Pros

    Great Vacation Time Package
    Maternity and Paternity Leave
    Standard benefit perks
    Good management

    Cons

    You aren’t rewarded for staying in the same position, the way you are rewarded financially is by trying to get promoted, that is the only way to really grow how much your making there isn’t much incentive to stay in the same position for more than 2 years or so.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to incentivize branch managers so that turnover isn’t high to other competitors or bigger branches

    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.
