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

    Pros

    Great co-workers which made a great work environment, initial PTO from day one, great experience if you do not have a college degree, promote internally, college tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Worked 7 days a week occasionally (some stores were open on Sunday, they are no longer to my knowledge), unrealistic sales goals (addressed publicly after I left the company), some of the customers truly tested my patience.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, educate your employees on credit and lending so they can educate the public,

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, decent benefits, and opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Toxic culture of passing the buck and blaming. The expectation is that an individual bury procedural weaknesses (or, heaven forbid, an actual human mistake) so as to appear perfect, which is counterproductive to a healthy and successful work environment. Instead of employees working together to fix problems, they often waste time trying to find a scapegoat upon which to place blame. This practice was consistent across departments.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a stable company to work for. As any large company, they have solid benefits: 401k, insurance, free bank account, etc. They don't bother your process as long as you perform. Low stress.

    Cons

    It's a good ole boy system in TX. Same rules dont apply to everyone, cronyism. Definitely a glass ceiling if you dont appear to fit the mold. Local management loves President Trump. If they feel you're outside of this, don't plan to be promoted.

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

    Pros

    More than enough vacation hours to help with work life balance. Company also matches 401k contributions up to 6%. Provides many opportunities to advance with proper licenses.

    Cons

    Some of the difficulties of working here is that your job is so centered on focus, customers tend to be very needy and do not understand policies and complain as a result.

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

    Pros

    Starting pay for teller was decent, benefits were good, coworkers (other tellers, not management) were nice. Never worked past 6pm.

    Cons

    Aggressive sales goals. If not met, even if you tried, you were given performance plans and write ups. Management forced us to sell things to people that we knew they didn't need (90 year old doesn't need a new credit card! A just out of high school 18 year old doesn't need a mortgage...come on). Were incredibly rude and condescending to tellers when we didn't meet goals, instead of coaching we were told to just "do it"

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and realize that you can't sell to everyone!
