    Pros

    depending on department flexable hours, work is independent for the most part, you are aware you your deadline so you can work at you pace.

    Cons

    Growth and promotions is limited, not all departments have flexibility or care about work life balance. Managers are not consistent. With current market condition managers think it’s a good thing to push people out.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't listen to your employees you’re going to lose them. Pushing people out doesn't ensure your job security.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a solid well capitalized bank; a safe company. Casual dress is allowed in the office with some dress down days. The pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    Long hours every third week of the month. Other times there is not enough to do. Cubical layout. Divided into teams with one manager.

    Advice to Management

    Know how to do your subordinate's job.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, and when the economy is good there are lots of little bonuses and parties thrown for employees.

    Cons

    Currently there is no room for growth. The current economy has completed stopped the growth within the Corporate Trust divison of Wells Fargo. The management has made questionable decisions about it's expectations for future business. When there was rapid growth from 2004-2006 the hiring standards were lowered in order to get people in the company to run the new business. This has allowed for a number of employees of questionable quality.

    Advice to Management

    Create a vision of where CTS needs to be headed, and help align the management to reach that goal. This needs to be communicated to the staff. Goals and high standards need to be set for all employees to make sure the high performers do not get burnt out and the low performers can get by without repremand.
