    Advice to Management

    Im glad sales went away. We were asked to do lots of shady stuff in order to hit "payout"

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was usually higher, the people you work with were great.

    Cons

    Extreme and unethical sales practices were being taught and then when a situation occurred they would level all blame and fault on bankers and lower level employees. Hitting your sales bonuses are not good enough you still get written up if you’re not making the outrageous inflated goals. Uneducated people would be hired and politics is rampid.

    Advice to Management

    All Wachovia holdover employees in the mgt and upper level positions need to go. They are Amongst the most corrupt people I ever witnessed. Stop blaming bankers for what management is teaching. Stop trying to sell to ppl just b a bank.

    Bad pay for work you do, bad management, too much office politics will never be promoted on merit but how much you kiss upper managements behind.
