    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits the company offers is ok. It use to be lower prices 2 yrs ago but now it has increases. There vacation days where fair but you would have to fight to get a day off. There discounts with cellphone companies where pretty good.

    The Challenges of working at Wells Fargo is the sales part. I know all positions at Wells Fargo is sales but they cross the line with high sales goals. It is very stressful.
