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

    Pros

    Good benefits, health, vision, dental and life insurance. Also short and long term disability. Legal insurance. If you have a good manager life is so easy and as long as you do what you are supposed to do you will have no problem.

    Cons

    In almost 6 years I have worked under 6 different managers, 2 of them were fired. Every time you have a new manager you have to start all over by proving yourself to the new manager to get promoted.
    Hard to get out of retail banking once you are there and if you do well, they’ll milk you.
    Sometimes, some of the employees have no common sense, makes you wonder how they got hired
    Low bonuses and your bonus depends on the overall preference of the team, so if %90 of the team does well and the %10 doesn’t then everyone’s pay takes a hit

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees means happy clients. Keep your employees happy and you won’t even have to manage the branch or the department will run on its own

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

    Pros

    Good people work there from security to the cafeteria. Benefits are decent. Retirement is possible if you work on it. Secured Building. Career Development. Community & Culture Connections. Networking is huge plus. Lateral movement is encouraged.

    Cons

    Negative Publicity. No department can stand alone so all suffer production at the same time at times. Constant change on how to run a department year in to year out. The number of loyal workers being displaced. Company policy prohibits active employees to give a quality reference for future employment.

    Advice to Management

    Talk is talk & sounding the same as the next is not management skills. Action on your part is necessary to prove culture of caring exist in a team's environment. Management must lead by example for your team & should be a company standard. Some good will come from your team. If you don't like to participate, then you're not management material.
