    Neutral Outlook

    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.

    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,
