Has stability but internal transfer pay is not that great
Personal Banker (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 21, 2013
Been there for 7 years with 3 years in retail banking. Retail banking is a horrible place to work for unless you like that type of micro management, sales environment. Once I went into corporate banking, it was better. My manager was awesome and very supportive but unfortunately, there was not much room for advancement. It did not help that internal transfers or promotions did not provide much of a raise or compensation. It is true what they say about how people have to leave to another company and then go back in order for them to get paid more.

Day starts and ends with serving customers with various backgrounds, cultures, languages, attitudes, how you handle them it is up to you. some difficult some easy and outgoing. building rapports, knowing them by heart, remembering their names and face make it little bit easy. cash handling and focusing on what people actually cares the most about is the most important part. environment is professional yet friendly. we are not co-workers, we are family. we love each other, wanting to go to work and see each other, one doesn't come in gets phone calls or texts to know she or he is missed and supported. from the beginning everything is important, hard, and easy. managers are straightforward and authentic. no game is played.
supports, positive feedback, room to move up, paid vacation and holiday

Wells Fargo has been my favorite job I've had. Depending on the branch you work, the managers truly care for you, very easy to move up positions in the company, and great benefits, including 4 months of maternity leave.

Everyone is very professional. Only drawback is if you are in a job with defined sales goals. I was able to take many classes at Norwest University which helped me to move up in the company. They were very generous with stock options and 401K contributions. and vacation time. The pay was not as good as what you would get at a corporation.
Health care benefits, 401K and Stock options
They were not reasonable with their expectations for sales
Recon and Returns (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 22, 2017
This company does not pay fair nor do they address employee needs or concerns. Not a relaxed environment at all. Older employees are pushed to retire while younger employees are hired that have no work ethics.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Red Bank, NJ – July 21, 2017
You see and learn a lot in 20 years. Wells Fargo has been a great company to work for, overall. However, there have been many changes over the years . . .some good . . .some not so good. Senior management touts its theme of team members as the competitive advantage but really needs to put that into practice.
Great co-workers and immediate managers
Senior management has lost touch with the team members in the field.

Wells Fargo was an amazing workplace. Mostly made possible by my fellow team members. A typical day at work consisted of me greeting customers and doing transactions. My management team consistently checked up on our progress and made sure we had everything we needed to complete the job at hand. The workplace culture was very diverse, with many of us coming from different backgrounds. The hardest part of the job came with the constant changes coming from corporate later into my time with the company. The most enjoyable part of my job however was coming to work everyday and working with people i would go on to call my friends.
