    Pros

    Now it is changing and becoming becoming better place to work, focused on the customer and providing awesome service. No more pushing products.

    Cons

    The customer experience survey is too long, just ask customers short questions that they can answer yes or no.
    Have better survey.

    Take it easy on the change and slow down.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in Document Custody, so I worked at a desk, and not at a bank handling customers. It was good for introverts.

    Cons

    The culture was stagnant and dead. No one was there to grow. People had been in my department for 25 years, with no desire to learn new tasks, or take on new responsibilities. Everyone is crabby every single day. The system in place that dictates where you can move in the company is designed to keep you down. Not a place of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like every day is a funeral. Management sets a very dour, nose to the grindstone tone every day. You can tell how much they dislike their jobs by how much they congratulated me when I quit and got out of there.

    Good company to work for. Great pay, benefits.

    Pros

    The coworkers and managers were nice to work with.

    Cons

    No transparency. Communication between coworkers was frowned upon and focus was solely on production. Not a very good work space and work environment.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Good development opportunities
    Friendly people
    Good PTO and 401K
    Good locations
    Corporate positions are much better than retail

    Cons

    The company says that they have gotten rid of sales goals, but they still push referrals to bankers and track the dispositions. Also anything less than a 5 on a survey is awful and needs to be improved on.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push employees so hard to focus on sales and help develop their careers more instead of forcing them to seek out their own opportunities
