    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.

    Pros

    The culture in Dealer Services is amazing!

    Cons

    The centralization of Dealer Services is leaving a lot of talented employees without an option to stay with Wells Fargo.

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

    Pros

    Putting money into the 401k. The job was actually good.

    Cons

    The office cared only about collecting money and would search for the customers to hunt them down on facebook although this wasn't allowed per the company, the management knew about it and looked the other way. The managers allowed a supervisor to get fired from her job because she was a different color than the rest of the employees there. It was a bad experience and the women acted like they were your friends and would let the insecure employee bully others by speaking badly to them and about them and the management never stood up and took a stand because they let the group treat her unfairly because of her skin color. HR took so long to get back to us employees that it by the time they did, they made the woman resign or they fired her (we never found out and only heard criticism about her). They hired more minorities to cover up their behaviors. They will find a way to fire them too but it is because of their skin color not because of the work they do. In that area there is plenty of racism.

    The employees are not professional or welcoming. They are not a team environment. It's every man for himself.

    The health benefits are not good.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee has a different skin color or has a different personality, you can't fix the problem by hanging a sign saying that you are and Equal Opportunity Employer. You have to respect others differences, appearances and personalities.

    Good retirement plans, good PTO system, good branch managers to work for, good company name to stand behind.

    Cons

    Very poor management at the senior level. Hard to sell financial products. Few products to sell. High interest rates on loans.

    Advice to Management

    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


  10. "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.
