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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a great place to get experience working with customers and learning to provide great customer service. Wells Fargo is great with getting cash handling experience, great job for being a student because it is part time and only work days, no nights or Sundays. (depending on branch)

    Cons

    It takes way too long to advance within the company. Shady sales tactics by some bankers in order to hit their quotas. Products that will give customers fees instead of helping them grow their wealth.

    Advice to Management

    Help any current employees find the career path that best suites their goals.
