    Pros

    Great pay policy which treat employees fairly. Switch to Wells fargo was the wost thing that happened. Good work life balance.

    The switch to wells fargo stalled all chances of advancement and promotion. It became all about churning out numbers and selling products people didnt need.

    Pros

    Well know it Wells Fargo but, it's one of the top banks in the country so, there are great benefits, pay and long lasting friendships.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons really about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing I would advise to management would be little understanding when family's have someone with a potential fatal illness.

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

    Pros

    They provided good training. I worked in a busy branch so it was a fast-paced environment. I liked it because it was never boring and the day flew by.

    Cons

    Teller manager was not flexible with scheduling. It was a mission to schedule doctor appointments. Progressing in the company was not an easy thing to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more growth opportunities to current employees that want to better themselves.

    Former Employee - Bank Teller

    I worked at Wachovia part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, even for part-time work. GREAT teller training. Recognition for doing great. They put an emphasis on creating a good environment for customers, which I appreciated as a teller as it made my job pleasant.

    Cons

    Expectations varied from branch to branch (I worked at one where the entire team was general happy to be there because of the great management, clear expectations, and generally smooth running of things; the second branch I worked at was the complete opposite, which eventually led me to leave the company). A little too much emphasis on selling products sometimes--especially as Wells Fargo was taking over;
