    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit options and many career paths to choose from

    Cons

    Too many hoops to jump through for the hiring process, even to internally apply for a job, both are very lengthy processes. Ridiculous sales/production goals.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up the reigns and let the departments handle the hiring process. After all, they know exactly what they are looking for and who would be the best fit in their department. Initiate fair & obtainable sales/production goals.

    It's a call center, work saturdays once a month, always on the phone , call centers can be micromanaged but my boss is as cool as he can be

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

    Pros

    The schedule is very flexiable, the days Monday thru Friday. I think not having to work on weekends is a plus. Overtime is offered for those who want to work it. I also like the job because it is not working on the phones its mostly data.

    Cons

    The management style is more a dicatorship and not a leadership. The company is real big on buddy buddy if you know this boss you get special treatment. The work you live slaves with litlle pay. A very stressful work enviornment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends who have no experience in their current job role. Let employees have a good work place balance all it seems you care about is numbers and not the people.

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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo Advisors is a fantastic place to work as an advisor. They give us a lot of support to help our practice and take care of all the due diligence, etc so I can have faith that the investments we use have been vetted. They have a very strong compliance division, which protects the clients, and they are strong financially, which means they don't have to take on risks.

    Cons

    When part of such a large corporation there will always be someone who does something wrong somewhere. Unfortunately that catches the eye of the news and even though it is in a different division, people assume that it infects the whole company.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the name of the Advisory division was not the same as the Banking division. Bank of America keeps the name of Merrill Lynch so that people know they are separate divisions. We are lumped together, with the banking division which has been a negative lately.
