    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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    The co-workers I worked with. We all shared in the misery.

    Cons

    . Micro-managed, my manager treated me like a child. Every morning I had to check in, in the afternoon I had to check in, after we closed I had to check in. Often times I would make a suggestion about segmentation or efficiency,then just get treated like I was not human. I was asked to run a teller window when I haven’t been a teller for years.

    . Working every Saturday due to always being short staffed (new hires did not last long)

    .Not being able to take vacation when I wanted

    Advice to Management

    Upper management please consider increasing the minimum qualifications of branch managers.

    Cons

    Childish atmosphere. Run by idiots who are only interested in giving favors to their friends. Two faced managers who lie to your face. Internal hierarchy of friends and if your not on the friends list, good luck advancing much.

    Advice to Management

    Quit already
