    I worked at Wells Fargo as an intern

    Pros

    Really good work experience, learned a lot about private wealth management, even just as an intern. Since you won't be licensed, most of the work you will be doing will be administrative in nature but very client focused, It felt like the advisors and CA's really cared about the clients.

    Cons

    No cons, it was a good learning experience working with financial advisors and client associates as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere with a great team of advisors who are dedicated to helping their clients achieve financial goals. Work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    The negative publicity has taken a toll on many of the advisors and clients. Limited opportunities to advance in the pittsburgh market but opportunities are endless if you’re willing to relocate.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hours are good (M-F, 8:30-5), benefits are very good, pay is decent for the area, clean and safe work environment. Local management is very good and takes care of employees as much as possible. PTO is pretty flexible and accommodating.

    Cons

    Locally, no opportunity for growth or advancement. Advisors are very myopic and self-centered and do not value family aspect of working in close quarters with good support staff who care and want to help make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Value the support staff positions more and realize good help is hard to find.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The best place about working at Wells Fargo was the people you worked with. For the most part they were all nice, fun, outgoing, and supportive

    Cons

    1. Recycled leads. People would get called at home and work up to ten times a week with employees trying to sell things. You could expect to get screamed at at least twice a day and rightfully so.
    2. Revolving door. After a year of working there I was the second most senior worker in the office. People get hired an fired like crazy.
    3. Micromanaging. You can expect to have your manager looking over your shoulder the entire day.
    4. Bonus structure is terrible. I led my office in sales one month and received a check for $25.00. You cannot make money there

    Advice to Management

    During interviews be upfront about the job. Explain the bonus structure and also explain how nobody ever makes more than $250 in a month in bonuses

  8. "Only take the Credit Manager job if you either really need the money or really need the name on your resume."

    Pros

    The name on the resume.

    Cons

    I did not like how it was run or how you advanced in the company. They were not very accommodating for a new employee.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better incentives and a different structure for what days you can take off.
