I am in the licensed banker program, i moved from a small investment company. Hoping to be a FC with Wells, once the time is right.

It is a good gig, great company. People you will work with are proud company people big time. You can go anywhere with Wells, the opps. for advancement are great within the company. You have sales goals like anything else, but if you do well. You will move ranks quickly. The benes are nice too.

Hope that helps a bit...

Except as a bank, they suck.  They are in good company though, a lot of banks suck.   All I can say is that a bank that treats its customers poorly likely does not treat its employees any better.   I wouldn't dream of working for these folks, Chase or Compass Bank.

Go see what Washington Mutual has.  While all the big banks are jerks, they seem to "suck less" than the others.  Also the regionals are often better.

Some background, I was a Compass Bank customer and they are the worst in TX.  So bad that the offices that officiate over banks have given them their own extention # for complaints!   A friend of mine works for them and she said the employees are indeed treated badly.  The FC at Chase also indicated he wasn't any more impressed with them than I was as a customer.

Think about it.  What keeps an organization solid?  It's sales force and its customers (not to mention product...but then Wells is among the pricest in town).   If they treat the customers crappy, how well do you think they treat the sales people?

Too many businesses don't understand that.

Good posts.  Look at the management–assess them like you would a stock.  Are they smart, do they make good moves, and yes do they treat their people well.
