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

    Pros

    HUGE company. Can go anywhere. Modest pay, great benefits, and did I mention room for growth

    Cons

    Can be a dead end job. If your productive and are mentally tough you'll be fine. I would advise looking for jobs elsewhere in Wells after your first year.

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

    Pros

    Salary, work life balance, benefits, no sales goals, modern banking and technology.

    Cons

    Federally regulated which means everything has to be documented and signed for which makes banking a little uneasy for customers. Especially known customers.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t micro manage which is why Wells Fargo got into trouble in the first place. Stop pressuring your employees.

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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a great company to work for. "People as our competitive advantage" is one of the core values and WF truly appreciates its employees, plenty of opportunity to move up with the right attitude and outstanding customer service skills. Great benefits, 16 weeks fully paid maternity leave among others. Minimum salary is going up to $15. I started as a teller and got promoted to PBI.

    Cons

    No downsides. With the change for the better campaign sales goals are gone, and customer satisfaction is number one goal.

    Advice to Management

    I have had great managers, supportive and caring. A lot to learn from.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and branch manager. There is opportunity to move up. They don't just sell you a dream. Great benefits. Match 6% 401K. Very multicultural.

    Cons

    Have been with Wells Fargo for a little over a month now and I can honestly say I'm having trouble thinking of a true negative.

    Pros

    Great managers who are interested in helping you grow and progress as a personal and as a professional. Competitive pay. Amazing PTO.

    Hard to get your foot in the door, but once you are in it is easy to move your way up if you are a hard worker.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company with many opportunities. Co-workers were great to work with and good management . Decent amount of vacation time.

    Cons

    Sales culture has changed since I worked there due to scandal. But at the time repetitively found myself talking to people who I was unable to help because of bad credit and low account balances.
