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

    Pros

    I have learned a lot working here. My current managers have helped reach a point in my career where it makes me want to continue to work up in the company.

    Cons

    All the higher ups give unproductive criticism which makes it harder for a lot of the employees to improve their position. It is also hard to move up in the company if you don't have supportive managers.

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

    Pros

    Very good in house processing and culture

    Cons

    Underwriting was difficult and did not feel like team work. It felt their job was to deny the loan, not work in partnership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good people by growing them and setting a good example.

    I worked at Wells Fargo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and thorough training. Pleasant work atmosphere and congenial co-workers. Supervisors always available to answer questions. Fair level of pay.

    Cons

    Difficult to reach clients during working hours and usually several attempts were required, creating a backlog. Negotiating with creditors was sometimes stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management is attentive and responsive. A period of "shadowing" experienced employees might be helpful.

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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo offer tons of great benefits like tuition reimbursement, 401k matching, paid volunteer hours, etc. There is also a lot of mobility for the patient and hardworking.

    Cons

    Sales goals in the past were set high and made it very difficult to achieve the highest payout in slower branches.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if the management took personal evaluations more seriously, and had an anonymous system to receive feedback from subordinates.

  10. "Great entry level position with ability to advance in the company. Fantastic training."

    Pros

    Great training, loved my coworkers, benefits included discounts on insurance/ phone service, pto, retirement, transportation, free parking at branches. Loved that I got business cards.

    Cons

    Pressure to push sales (of accounts/ services) lead to shady practices by some... eg. during the end of quarter crunch to meet quotas/ enable promotions/ receive bonuses, I was pressured into opening accounts for myself, and friends/ family. Heard the company was recently sued/ fined for it.

    Missing two Federal holidays, increasing health care costs, you need to be willing to relocate from time to time. Sometimes difficult to be heard.
