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

    Pros

    Education, Benefits, Compensation, Training, Career

    Cons

    Micromanagement, Schedules, Staffing, Disorganized, Dysfunctional

    Advice to Management

    People work better when they are not micromanaged and when you are hiring people for a specific job hire the most qualified, if you don't and you hire people you know and people who are you friends you are not being fair in terms of diversity and inclusion. When people can't do their jobs do the rest of the branch a favor and remove them from the organization as it puts extra workload on those that are do a lot for the company.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, health, vision, dental and life insurance. Also short and long term disability. Legal insurance. If you have a good manager life is so easy and as long as you do what you are supposed to do you will have no problem.

    Cons

    In almost 6 years I have worked under 6 different managers, 2 of them were fired. Every time you have a new manager you have to start all over by proving yourself to the new manager to get promoted.
    Hard to get out of retail banking once you are there and if you do well, they’ll milk you.
    Sometimes, some of the employees have no common sense, makes you wonder how they got hired
    Low bonuses and your bonus depends on the overall preference of the team, so if %90 of the team does well and the %10 doesn’t then everyone’s pay takes a hit

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees means happy clients. Keep your employees happy and you won’t even have to manage the branch or the department will run on its own

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Right now wells fargo is a good company because you don't have the pressure of sale your job is customer services
    it have good benefits

    Cons

    there salary, I think they should increase more instead of a few cents that they do every year.
    also every quarter they send a box full of goodies and pins and recognition card , I don't said that thats no good is just that i prefer the money to be as part of my salary.
    Another thing to get promoted you have to know somebody so they can help you if no your are going to be stuck in there forever

    Advice to Management

    just listen to they team member starting from the tellers

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

    Pros

    the benefits such as 401k and maternity leave are great. Also the amount of PTO after 3 years is 5 weeks.

    Cons

    No bonus since there are no sale goals....the only way to make extra bucks is through customer service which gets graded from 1 to 5 and its a branch score so even if you are pleasant and doing your job if another team member is not a ball of sunshine you might never see a bonus.

    It's really hard to move up.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    Upper management (District Manager and Area President)

    Advice to Management

    A district manager is suppose to help their team succeed through the good times and the bad. Don't ignore what is going on, do something, help, and support the team, don't let them down.
