    Pros

    Good job to start with . This company offers good training and great benefits. Professional environment at all times.

    Cons

    Management is not the best. If you are a mother or a college student with a really demanding career this might not be the job for you. This job requires flexibility, your work schedule may change within a 24 hour notice. For a full time you should know that the bank will need you there 6 days of the week.. You might be entitle to some flex time but at the end of the week you might end up a little stressed out.

    Advice to Management

    Vacation time is fair, but you might end up changing the days even if you get it approved 6 months earlier.

    Pros

    Excellent company as far as resources; this ensured great benefits, training, etc. Learned a lot about the banking/credit industry from my time with the company. Comprehensive 401K plan that was highly recommended by co-workers, unfortunately my brief period (Less than 1 year) with the company didn't provide much experience with the plan. Employees were recognized/congratulated by management for meeting monthly/yearly sales goals.

    Cons

    Constantly on the phone! Information sharing amongst employees was scarce. Working for a company like Wells Fargo during the "credit crunch" one would assume that more education would be provided for employees, especially sales members considering that information/knowledge is vital to selling. I was also extremely disappointed with the compensation packages offered to employees. It often felt as though this was an environment of "what have you done for me lately" but then again that's the sales industry in a nutshell. Required sales targets were unreasonable considering the lack of compensation provided for meeting these quotas. Products provided customers with little to no finance stability/relief, just perpetuated a struggling economy.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your staff and make them feel engaged in the success of the company!!!
