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

    Pros

    Great PTO and includes all bank holidays, Healthcare benefits are quite affordable after meeting deductible. After 3 years, you are raised to considerably more time off. 10 minute grace period daily for punctuality as long as you make up the time. Current CEO just in stated 2 extra floating holidays to honor work/life balance

    Cons

    Very long period between 3-9 years of service before PTO increases, quite a lot of micromanagement issues. Communication breakdown from corporate level to us as well

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, advancement, bonuses, transfer opportunity

    Cons

    Management, Upper Management, no work/life balance, always asked to stay late & come in early.

    Advice to Management

    I started in North Carolina with Wachovia and went through the Wells transition. I LOVED Wells Fargo/Wachovia back there. Here in Utah it's a completely different story. Upper management is catty and unqualified. Very petty and create their own "standards" that conflict with standard operating procedures for the company. After multiple calls to HR on a district manager problems were eventually resolved. I might also add, I was a PB at the time when Wells was being very unethical. I never took part in the practice but all management simply looked away and put those with "lower" (ethical) sales goals under fire.

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

    Pros

    Talking to different customers throughout the day. Coworkers are fun.

    Cons

    Too much focus on sales...they would discipline you for not meeting sales goals. Management isn't very good. They're unavailable and not knowledgeable. I had one good manager out of four. Consistency varies between managers. There's little team cohesion as employees and management are moved around frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Bring management up to par, make teams more permanent.

    Pros

    401k plan, telecommute opportunities, and the team members

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

    Pros

    Company has made great changes since sales integrity problems. Focus is less on sales and more about the customer. Company has great benefits and work/life balance is great. Pay is reasonable however the personal banker 1 position is only about $6000 more per year than a teller which doesn't seem competitive to the industry standard.

    Cons

    Management's areas of focus always changing within your role. Very challenging to move up past personal banking side into financial advising and private banking. Education not stressed enough for advancement on the retail banking side.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a great place to work. They take good care of their employees. Team Member experience is one of their top priorities.

    Cons

    Management is always super fun. There are personnel issues to handle, paperwork and compliance things. Any management position is going to have those downsides.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people, they will make all difference in how your branch runs. Having people who competent and willing to do what they are asked, go above and beyond is a huge value.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security and somewhat competitive pay for the state I'm in. Benefits aren't too expensive and seem to be decent for the price you pay

    Cons

    Support from management is extremely lacking with this company. Management is more concerned about general appearances of the department as a whole rather than whether employees actually enjoy their job and are being developed how they want to be.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on in-office politics and focus more on developing promising employees
