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

    Pros

    -Large company, lots of training, learn a lot about customer service and sales

    Cons

    -Strong leaning toward selling and not as much toward customer satisfaction. Though I think they are changing that in their culture.
    -You really do feel like you're trapped on the phone. But some people can handle that. I couldn't.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employee incentives for something other than sales. But again, I think that's changed.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A challenging fast-paced working environment with continuous support. Employees are always in the loop with news, updates, and progress reports with monthly meetings.

    Tasks become overly repetitive. Sometimes, half the workload may highly improve production but is irrelevant due to improper citation or overlooked criteria.
