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

    Pros

    Team was extremely nice and fun to work with. I’m the beginning when I didn’t know anything, almost everyone was trying to offer their time to teach me.

    Cons

    Management needs to have better communication skills. The bank also needs to make sure that the managers have adequate training and are QUALIFIED for their position.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees in a sincere way. I could tell that it’s all a facade easily. Sit down with your bankers and tellers. Come to the morning huddles to discuss and listen.

    I worked at Wells Fargo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For someone who enjoys working with customers face-to-face, retail banking gives you great exposure from walk-ins. With just a little extra effort, customers will love you. While at WF I developed lots of fruitful relationships with clients.

    Cons

    Incredibly high turnover, including management in many branches. Very high sales goals for personal bankers, you will need to leverage your personal relationships to achieve these goals when you're just starting off.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time thinking about what you want the culture of your branch to be. People these days care about culture, even in banking.
