    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    insurance and paid time off

    Cons

    very easy to be forgotten about, the company does not do enough to motivate and build its current employees. would rather hire and pay an outsider more money for the same job than an individual with over 15 years of experience

    Advice to Management

    management is poor due to prior unethical business strategies. focused on quick turn around rather than focusing on the real issues that put them in the trouble they are currently in, overall they are hoping people will forget what happened then go back to doing what they were doing

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the customers were easy going.
    Benefits

    Cons

    Little to none advancement
    You can be stuck in a job role for a long time depending on if your manager wants to promote you or not.
    High Sales Practice.
    Micromanage
    Bonuses are solely depended on customer feelings ( surveys ) which can be unfair.
    Favortism
    Lazy managers who careless about their employees

    Advice to Management

    Please don't abuse your title of being the " manager". Some managers at Wells Fargo refuse to work because of their title which is so upsetting to me. Some get paid to come to work without lifting a finger while the rest of us working hard to keep the bank efficient.

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

    Pros

    Flexible with hours. Great at working as a team and training.

    Cons

    The goals they give are unattainable. They also did not care if you were in the drive thru or not. They only offer a bonus to those who could make the goals. Did not pay well.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with realistic goals. The goal should be to take care of customers not shove new accounts down their throat.
