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

    Pros

    Wonderful 401k match at 6%, affordable health, life, dental, vision and ad&d insurances, domestic partner coverage, and wonderful staring pto at 18 days first year, 23 in your second and an additional week once you make it to ten years.

    Cons

    Some managers are not in it for their employees and don't understand what good management is. I've moved twice now in search of a better manager.

    Advice to Management

    Provide higher pay to client associates and include advisor bonuses in commission overrides to CA's.

    Pros

    Hours, work days. Love working in operations. Very professional work place. Great volunteer opportunity. Our manager does an amazing job at promoting an encouraging, positive environment.

    Cons

    Not fair pay, no bouns. Not enough recognition of how the client associate is a big part of Financial Advisors business growth.

    Advice to Management

    Could work better with providing better understanding to Financial Advisor on how appreciation to client associate makes a difference in the grow of their business.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hours are good (M-F, 8:30-5), benefits are very good, pay is decent for the area, clean and safe work environment. Local management is very good and takes care of employees as much as possible. PTO is pretty flexible and accommodating.

    Cons

    Locally, no opportunity for growth or advancement. Advisors are very myopic and self-centered and do not value family aspect of working in close quarters with good support staff who care and want to help make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Value the support staff positions more and realize good help is hard to find.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They provide a good benefit package.

    Cons

    Fight for an initial high salary as their wage increases will not keep up. New employees were starting at much high levels than those employees that had been there for many more years. Career growth was always considered a lateral move per HR.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the employess with better career growth opportunites without having to take a wage decrease.
