    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay, 401k match, discounts, paid holidays, Sundays off.

    Hiring process is really slow, not much opportunity to move up in the field, been under a microscope for years, it's more about your network than you knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Assigned a book of business and Salesforce CRM. Allowed to go out of the branch to visit clients. Tons of training once hired and continually.

    Cons

    The bonus has been decreased due to the fake account scandal with focus. Bonus is now quarterly and focused on customer service scores and growth of the branch assets.

    Advice to Management

    Give freedom to your specialist to go out and acquire business. Stop treating them like personal bankers.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is an abundance of work to be done, solving and fixing big problems that exist throughout the bank. Most of the hardworking team members are very good people.

    Cons

    You will likely spend most of your days frustrated because leadership doesn’t want real change they measure success by activities not outcomes. This is a highly politicized environment.

    Advice to Management

    Fire any leader who has been there greater than two years, or had any line of sight to any of the current scandals. Clean house really.
