    Pros

    Wells Fargo provides all the resources you would need to be successful at this job. All you need is the drive to succeed and they will get you there.

    Cons

    The sales goals are high and sometimes may seem daunting but they can be achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down goals into small bit size pieces so that they don't seem so large and hard to get to.

    Pros

    The company is great to work for, many perks in discounts, retirement match, paid time off, quarterly bonuses, many opportunities to grow within the company. Great coworkers and environment (most of the time...you always have those few who are Debbie Downers)

    Cons

    Be ready to sell products! Its all about the customer and making sure they have EVERY possible product that will help benefit them. If you don't meet your goals, no bonus. After a certain amount of not meeting your quarterly goals, they will write you up if you don't make a change.

    Spend even more time trying not to look and feel like a huge mess of a company. A lot works well, especially in the IT world.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and pay. Community involvement is huge with this company. Food in Cafeteria is always good and fresh. This company has a diverse culture which is awesome. There is various departments to work for. Management is great because they really care about you and often ask for feedback on how to better their processes.

    Cons

    Parking is too far from building in their operations location. At times there is unrealistic expectations as it relates to sales and processes of loans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
