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

    Pros

    WF is a very large bank with lots of different products, and many different career opportunities. There are many very smart and motivated employees who really do try to serve the customer. It is great to work with such a great team of people.

    Cons

    WF is very big, so sometimes it is difficult to find the right person or department to solve a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your focus on the customers and the team members. If both are treated well, the business will continue to be successful.

    Pros

    The people that I work with are great and my manager is a great role model.

    Cons

    Not every department is up to date with their compliance. This makes it difficult for line of businesses to smoothly work together. I get a request to seek for an exception almost everyday.

    Pros

    The innovation group has a great working environment and a wonderful management team. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides unless you don't like actually doing work. There are definitely high expectations so if you get into this department you should be passionate about what you do.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all of Wells Fargo but for the Innovation Group, keep Doug what you are doing. Steve Ellis has created a great team.

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

    Pros

    -Easy way into sales
    -Patience and political cunning can lead to a lucrative career as Private Banker or Business Banker
    -1 month training program fully paid

    Cons

    -Unrealistic sales goals. Good look even meeting the minimum sales goals tier. Constantly switching up compensation to minimize number of people that get paid.
    -You will witness people commit felonies regularly. Signing people up for credit cards without consent, opening and closing accounts without disclosing to customers (to hit sales goals), lying to people about closing accounts.
    -Customers treat you terribly at times
    -Coworkers can be great, but there's a severe lack of professionalism. Comments on personal appearance, brazen sexual harassment.
    -Don't kid yourself, this is a retail job like working at Macy's or Starbucks. Expect commiserate compensation and treatment.
    -You are required to do a 20 minute interview with every person that you sit down with, probing about their financial situation. "How much do you make? Any new debts? Going on vacation? Let me open you a vacation checking, savings and debit card. And an online-purchase checking, savings, and debit card!" This last part was so disgustingly rampant. You are exploiting your customers.
    -Avoid at all costs - work at a credit union or any other entry-level sales job.

    Advice to Management

    -The CEO serving when I worked there resigned in shame thankfully. Stop focusing on hitting Wall Street sales goals by churning accounts. The real value is in customer service and building long-term relationships to encourage expansion into other financial products, NOT feloniously opening credit cards and accounts against people's will.

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

    Pros

    Stability, diversity, benefits, core values

    Cons

    Can get very political at times. Once ceiling is reached, hard to advance on ladder. Company is running too lean on budget for technology upgrade and staff development.

    Advice to Management

    Besides focusing much on budget due to current Efficiency & Effectiveness program, focus more on growing the the lower level staff to maintain the strong core values this bank holds.
