    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.

    The culture in Dealer Services is amazing!

    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.
