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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They work with your schedule as much as possible. I go to school and my manager was able to give me two days off during the week to be able to attend my classes. You get PTO and paid holidays. It's been a great experience so far.

    Cons

    It's a customer service job so of course sometimes customers can be difficult but it's nothing that cant be handled.

    No room for growth, very political, who you know will get you ahead not hard work, compensation sucks compared to what it was you don't get paid for hard work being put in.

    Pros

    The quarterly compensation system seems to be a little more realistic compared to other financial institutions.

    The hourly/salary paid to higher branch leader positions versus the amount of work that needs to be completed on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely a great stepping stone for other great opportunities that may be more beneficial financially.
