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

    Pros

    Easy if you are good at customer service. No sales goals. Nice 401k plan. Paid vacation 2 weeks each year as soon as your hired.

    Cons

    Lots of bad manager experiences at multiple locations. The politics are very heavy and you have to play the game to not sink.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is the reason for turnover.

    Pros

    Supportive, consistent, team oriented, professional. Good PTO and benefits.

    Cons

    Phone work isn't great, pay is about average.

    Advice to Management

    Structure pay raises to come sooner when making big adjustments to company pay. People can feel left out, or quit, if they feel they are not being valued and that the newer people are earning more with less experience.

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

    Pros

    Inexplicably wonderful co-workers, dedicated to customer service.

    Cons

    Morally bankrupt leadership. Read the headlines.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't it be great if just once a newspaper headline that began with "Wells Fargo" didn't include "Record Fines"? You clowns don't deserve the great people who work for you.

    Pros

    PTO, 401K matching, paid sick time, peers and locations. Training program is also good

    Cons

    It's a big corporation and money only counts in this kind of companies

    Advice to Management

    Some employees are more qualified than others, pay for that.

    Pros

    The people who work for the company are amazing and sincerely try to do the right thing

    Cons

    Management is awful, generally speaking. Left the company due to my manager who couldn’t follow through. Company tends to promote people that don’t deserve it and are bare minimum workers

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge and appreciate employees that do quality and honest work rather than promoting employees that don’t try or care

    The company is focused on damage control rather than on customers, and certainly rather than employees.
