    Pros

    6% 401(k) match, decent amount of vacation, free lunch and parking

    Cons

    No promotions, each job you want you have to apply for and they are the "tell me a time when...." type of interviews. Health insurance is not good, very high deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within

    Pros

    Uh.... I guess there is free lunch but if you don't work during the normal lunch hours you get whatever is tossed in a box.

    Cons

    You have to deal with ignorant, rude, unethical, childish co-workers that do not know how to do their job and don't know how to act properly at a professional job. People are promoted based on how well they are liked and not on skills or knowledge. Horrible work hours and aren't told about them until the last minute. When you ask questions you are given a generic answer that doesn't actually answer anything.

    Advice to Management

    You need to clean house. More than half of the workers cheat the system and refuse to actually work and help the customers.

    Pros

    Having the ability to consistently grow, being rewarded for your efforts that are outside of what is initially asked of you

    Cons

    fast paced environment, micromanaged with aux codes, that affect your bottom line, even if it is just a simple bathroom break, however they don't throw you out to the wolves because of it, but if you do it too much, there will be a conversation about it.

    Advice to Management

    We as adults all have rules and regulations that must be followed, don't let your or a title get in the way of realizing that the company chose to hire adults not children.

    Pros

    Good job to work while retired but not a career position. Great place to get your Series 7 & 63.

    Cons

    You are expendable within this position and employee turnover is high. No incentive to perform well and a slacker can easily skate at this position. Cronyism is present.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like just a number and give them more incentive to work to their true potential.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The corporate culture is focused on the customer. Good benefits on site (free parking, lunch in Menomonee Falls WI)

    Cons

    Managers are inexperienced and sometimes incompetent. They hire people to lead a team. They may not be familiar with policies, procedures or the simplest tasks their teams perform on a daily basis. They believe they can use the latest greatest managerial mumbo jumbo to get by. That only leads to a lack of respect and trust from those doing the work. Managers take opportunities from their teams and horde it for their own personal advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what your team is actually doing. Get in the trenches when necessary.

    Pros

    PTO, free lunch, good work/life balance

    Cons

    office politics, management, compensation, company says they care about your advancement with the "IDP" process but limit ability to apply for other positions if your team is short staffed or you haven't met a 1 year requirement in your current role. the company is big on your brand and if you say one wrong thing your brand is ruined.

    Advice to Management

    the employees are people, not robots, and try to listen and understand instead of living inside a box that the company has outlined.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great security license training program. (Series 7 and 66)
    - Management is willing to work with you if you are willing to work.
    - Excellent place to start after college to gain experience.
    - 401(k)
    - Tuition reimbursement. (free MBA anyone??)
    - PTO
    - Free lunch

    Cons

    - Not all management is qualified for their position (like most companies)
    - Office politics
    - Performance is evaluated on a set chart. This makes gaming the system very easy, which rewards laziness not true talent.
    - Moving within WFAF is difficult but there are many opportunities within other parts of the company.
    - Lower pay. Remember you are working for a bank not a true investments firm!
    - Call center job

    Advice to Management

    - Increase compensation for employees to retain top talent
    - Reward true talent instead of someone playing the system
    - Motivation, professionalism, and expectations come from the top. If you're not doing what's expected neither will your employees.

    Pros

    Big company, so it'll look good on your resume
    Paid training for securities licences
    Great benefits - employer matching 401k, good health insurance, ok PTO

    Cons

    In the call center, your shift changes quarterly which is extremely frustrating. Most people are required to work weekends. When you apply for a promotion, you typical don't get it. Lots of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better and don't require them to work full weekends.
