    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo offers great benefits to their employees including 401k, PTO, discounts, tuition reimbursement and more. At my location we had really great management

    Cons

    Gets boring, minimal movement through-out the day, outbound calling

    Advice to Management

    Outbound calls do not work, customers don't like to be contacted if they have not been in the branch.

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

    Pros

    • Building great rapport and extended relationships with customers who specifically ask for you. Very rewarding and flattering feeling when you are the best person to assist someone, in a customer’s eyes

    • Managers cared and listened to my career development goals. They even went the extra mile to help me reach my goals and lead me in the right direction

    • Team members were generally helpful and mindful to one another

    • Hours and benefits were good. Flexible PTO

    • Good training program although most of the learning comes from hands-on experience

    • Excellent opportunity to build relevant, real world experience

    Cons

    • Difficult to deal with people in negative situations

    • Many company policies did not make it easy to resolve issues. Very stressful at times because of this

    • Micromanagement is present in many areas. Some day-to-day practices just seemed like extra work and a waste of time. Prevented me from providing a truly organic customer experience

    • Salary is sub-par until you are promoted

    In many cases, Personal Bankers are not given the authority to solve a customer’s issue by themselves alone. Much of my time was spent jumping on the phone to different internal department specialists to solve issues. This was very helpful in a lot of cases, but there were also many cases that I’d have to reach out to a specialist for an issue that could have been easily fixed by myself alone - had I only been given the authority. Sometimes those internal phone calls had me being transferred around and sitting on hold for 30+ minutes at a time - all while the customer is staring at me waiting for an explanation for the hold-up. Very awkward and stressful at times — not to mention confusing and irritating for the customer.

    This job is more of a customer support role than anything. It takes the right kind of people-person who can effectively deal with negative situations and problems. Sometimes it involves having to struggle to find a feasible solution that is within unclearly defined company policies. Managers are there for support, but some situations can become very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Please quit the traditional micromanagement practices. It’s awkward and takes away from the customer experience. Just let team members be themselves in all aspects of the jobs, within reason of course, as I believe customers resonate better when they can just talk to a team member who acts like a normal human being.

    Also, allow more leniency with authority. Allow bankers more ability to make account changes on their own without having to connect to other departments.

    Pros

    Very stable job, impossible to get fired, low expectations, lots and lots of PTO with some paid volunteer time

    Corporate culture does not reward hard work. No incentive is provided to perform beyond minimum expectations.
