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

    Pros

    After working with a very disorganized company, I got a job as a bank teller at Wells Fargo and really appreciated the organization and clear expectations set for employees. Now that sales goals have gone away or at least decreased, I wouldn't hesitate to work at Wells again because I appreciate the value and respect they give to their costumers and I liked being a part of that. The pay was good.

    Cons

    When I worked there, we had some big sales goals that I struggled to reach. Now that the company has done away with that for the main part, I think it would be a perfect place to work.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Learned so much about hitting sales goals, and they expect a LOT out of you, so other jobs are a breeze.

    Cons

    They don't always deliver on what they promise you and dock you on your performance if you don't push a customer to sign up for something during every transaction.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your word and think about the limits you're pushing your employees to reach.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo pays most of it's employees really well. The work is rewarding as a loan officer. Some of my co-workers were wonderful people and good friends.

    Cons

    For me, the biggest con was my management. My direct manager was demanding, and tried to scare me into selling product everyday. Sadly, I was happiest when she was not in the office; which happened way too often. Also, my regional manager was totally unethical in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and manage them how they need and want to be managed. Do a better job of empowering your employees to reach the big, bad, corporate's expectations of each employee.

    Pros

    There are many career advancement opportunities within Wells Fargo. You can easily start off as a teller and then work your way to lead teller, banker, and then service manager in two or three years. After that, you can become branch manager. In my case, I'm currently looking for opportunities in the IT area, and there are countless opportunities there once I graduate.

    Cons

    On the retail banking side, Wells Fargo seems to focus too much on sales. That puts a lot of pressure on the employees to sell their products and services, and advancement is often dependent too much on how well you can sell. For example, if you are a teller and want to advance to a service manager position eventually, you'd better be selling well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on customer satisfaction. I don't think the WOW program is good enough.
