    Pros

    Rewards those who have done well. It really pays to perform and stay ahead of the game. They value individual recognition and reward sales efforts very well. I was promoted 3 months on the job purely based off of individual performance. I am proud to work for such a conservative company that doesnt end up on the 6 o'clock news for doing bad loans or putting clients in harms way...

    Cons

    You have to come in and hit the ground running. No time for babysitting or hand-holding...Also more immediate and timely feedback would be appreciated. The base pay isnt very competitive either in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that finance sales are affected by market conditions. Goals shouldnt be the same as they were when the housing market was booming.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They had great benefits and I work with a great team.

    Cons

    It is numbers driven and building relationships doesn't matter as long as you open a checking account for every customer that sits at your desk. Whether they can use it or not. You are expected to lie to get the sale.

    Advice to Management

    Live by your motto Service First and Sales Second!

    Pros

    Large company with good benefits and promotion opportunities if you are willing to relocate.

    To many managers and we had to do reports for reports it felt like it was just simply for job justification.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Pay is okay! Friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Better training. The equipment and computer system is very old school. For wells fargo to be the number 2 bank in america you would've thought each branch had a TCR cash machine!!!!

    Advice to Management

    It gets so busy in there the customer's are usually out the door!! Easier and faster systems and equipment to utilize and faster and better customer experience.
