    Pros

    Was great place to work when it was Wachovia! I will rate below based on Wachovia.

    Cons

    When they became Wells Fargo it took a turn for the worse. Everyone was unhappy employees and customers. The company stopped caring about the customer and only cared about the almighty dollar. Overworked, disrespected and unappreciated their employees. (sad)

    Pros

    Good corporate culture. although you can get overlooked as a low producer. emphasis on higher income producers. these producers would get higher percentage payouts.

    Cons

    sold to wells fargo. did not allow for a share holder vote. in the quarterly report before the firm was stating they would go bankrupt, wachovia stated the firm was in a strong financial position.
