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

    Pros

    Holidays off and off by 6p during the week.

    Cons

    Very sales driven company. If you didn't make sales, you didn't mean anything to the company. You could of have an amazing interaction with customer, but if you didn't make a sale, it was just a waste of your time (according to management). Very uncomfortable. Managers are always micromanaging you to ensure you are doing sales part.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
