    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Opportunities for growth; I was promoted within my first month employed. Benefits were good. Opportunities for overtime.

    Cons

    Upper management out of touch with those below them. Relaxed work environment led to some issues between personnel; gossip, slacking off, etc.

    Pros

    Great training, benefits, managers. Lot of Overtime. Great Incentives.

    Cons

    When you get laid off they are not good at getting you into another dept.

    If you lay people off at least attempt to place your good workers in an another position instead of making them start over with the company

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to grow. 401k options are good. Array of products especially in business lending, are great.

    Cons

    In retail, relationship banking is not a priority, selling "widgets" are. Store mgrs are given a lot of autonomy, so they can be your best friend or worst enemy. So far two mgrs I have worked with, leave a lot to be desired. Health benefits just took a big turn for the worst in 2014.
