    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free wholesaler breakfasts and lunches on average 3 days per week.

    Cons

    No career advancement and management is only concerned about revenue producing personnel; not those that support them.

    Advice to Management

    Make more room for internal advancement.

    Don't tout the Next Generation agenda, and fail to hire for that agenda at the local branch levels.

    When you do hire for these initiatives, make sure the pool includes more than just the 20 year olds, but maybe some 30 and 40 year olds that still have a 25-30 year work life. They too, can be the next generation and have more life experience.

     Likewise, don't post internal positions that are already pegged for someone else. It wastes everyone's time, and get's their hopes up. It's also an unethical practice.

    Update your business model and your technology so it's more client friendly. Clients should be able to perform certain functions from their computer. e.g. opening new brokerage accounts, etc.
