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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo treats each and every employee as an asset by encouraging employees to continuously learn and grow both individually and as a team. I have never worked for a company that focuses so intensely on supporting its' employees through coaching, mentoring, and encouraging career development.

    Cons

    The only cons involved in working for Wells Fargo involve those barriers that employees may create as a result of poor adherence to schedule, or not reaching out to ask questions when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Most always do, but make sure to say good morning to each and every one of your team members! It really makes a difference and makes being at work feel like being home!

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

    Pros

    Benefits and 401k were absolutely great. Working at a different company now and medical is no where near what Wells Fargo had. Managers were also pretty good to work for.

    Cons

    Corporate climate, office politics played too big of a role in trying to move up the ladder. Flexibility wasn’t in their vocabulary in regards to scheduling

    Pros

    Challenging dynamic work in a great environment.

    Cons

    Love my job but finding it difficult to get hired off contract even with excelent performance.

    Advice to Management

    Navigating HR to get interviews is unnecessarily difficult. Ive seen coworkers have to train new hires for positions they weren't qualified for...despite doing the job.

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

    Pros

    Treated with respect, Employees always went above & beyond for customers.

    Cons

    Bank Tellers should NEVER have to sell products for the bank. Banking/ Money is private. People do not want products pimped to them when conducting money transactions.

    Advice to Management

    STOP making your bank tellers sell products. Promotions/maintaining employment should not be made solely on sales.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, teamwork focused, room for growth. Coaching on your career path specific to your strengths. Nationwide opportunities. Various lines of business allowing for more than just retail banking.

    Cons

    The only real con I can think of would be having to work on weekends. It used to be having to work until 6 PM or so but many of the branches have shortened their hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the career development coaching. Morning huddles were also wonderful for team building and keeping us on the same page.
