    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, paid holidays, PTO, 401k match, medical, etc
    My manager is great, they’re really all about deleboping you and getting you to where you’d like to go in your career.
    There is a lot of opportunity for advancement. They promote from internally as much as possible.
    Bankers hours are a plus.
    They train incredibly well for the financial industry, definitely known for that.
    I really love my job, Wells Fargo is a great place to work.

    Cons

    It’s been hard for the last while with all of the lawsuits going on. Some bankers who weren’t good at their job have made it miserable for the rest of us. But we have loyal customers and coworkers who make it better!

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing team members! It shows you truly care.

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, competitive pay, and supervisors that take a genuine interest in their subordinates. I have been impressed by their commitment to making this a good place to work and build a career.

    Cons

    They only major con is that, in this position, the work that you do is largely dependent on other people. That is not usually an issue, however their are times where it makes your day a little more complicated than it maybe had to be.

    Advice to Management

    So far my advice is to keep it up!

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

    Pros

    After working with a very disorganized company, I got a job as a bank teller at Wells Fargo and really appreciated the organization and clear expectations set for employees. Now that sales goals have gone away or at least decreased, I wouldn't hesitate to work at Wells again because I appreciate the value and respect they give to their costumers and I liked being a part of that. The pay was good.

    Cons

    When I worked there, we had some big sales goals that I struggled to reach. Now that the company has done away with that for the main part, I think it would be a perfect place to work.

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

    Pros

    -Wells Fargo is so large that they have just about every product and feature available, which is a big draw for people to open new accounts and for cross-selling

    Cons

    Because they are so large, sometimes the overwhelming amount of internal information made it a long process to find answers/resolve problems for customers. It often involves calling multiple departments.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more communication from district and area management directly to non-management employees

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay seems to be roughly competitive compared to other financial institutions. Also, you learn a lot about basic banking and personal finance.

    Cons

    The culture can vary pretty significantly depending on who your manager is. The problem is that the hiring strategy isn't really focused on hiring excellent managers, but on promoting top performers - who may or may not be great leaders. Additionally, Wells Fargo does a bad job of allowing an employee to expand their interest or go beyond their very specific tasks. Micro management is a huge issue on the retail banking level.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management is always pretty impressive, but something gets lost in translation and doesn't filter down well to lower level managers.

    Pros

    Great company in terms of training and they really want to help promote you within the company.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo recently changed the starting pay for tellers to $13.50 which is only $0.50 less than what they typically pay lead tellers who are often helping train new tellers.
