    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of paid time off, great company culture, and lots of training/coaching if you want it. Company also promotes from within and regularly checks in with you to see what your goals are with the company. Management will work with you to help reach those goals. Pretty good worklife balance, you work your 40 hours and very, very rarely overtime. Company actively doesn't want it. When on paid time off, management never reaches out in regards to work and you don't take work home if you're not management.

    Cons

    Likely due to past scandals, policy changes at a very rapid pace. It feels like you constantly have to check to see what the new changes are and calling the back office can give mixed results. Coaching can become overbearing if you're not used to it. Sales goals technically eliminated, but it's still ultimately a sales job. This isn't so much a con, but different managers will have different expectations for this aspect of the job.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay slightly above average, no sales goals

    Cons

    Having to do damage control in light of recent indiscretions, often times upper management prevents you from moving up unless you're well known within your district

    Current Employee - Service Manager 
    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. I have worked with great team members and have been able to build my customer service skills. It's a good job to start out especially working through college for the paycheck and experience.

    Cons

    Some bad management and even more terrible ones. There are branch managers who were apart of the sales scandal and act like those sales goals are coming back. They constantly degrade, but don't help you with your growth or assist with building a plan to help you reach the next position. They want to take credit for the success their team members make in the branch, but haven't done anything to reach those goals. Constantly getting threatened to be written up for something minor, because they can no longer threaten to fire over not cross selling enough. 8 was never great for the account holders who have a below to mid average income. WF says there's no pressure to sale products, but threaten to close and shut down branches for not generating enough revenue. The health insurance is terrible and the best compensation really just goes to BM and DM.
