    Pros

    Great staff, benefits, and overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    The goals and pace are definitely a bit hard to get used to. However, if you have the right manager who knows what they are doing then you can definitely breakthrough any barrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the suggestions of employees.

    Great company to work for. A bit large and disjointed but overall runs as the well-oiled machine it is.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    it's what you imagine when you fantasize about working for a corporation. Looking over the city, very technological environment. you're very well compensated and have a very stress free workspace and co-workers

    Cons

    Sometimes there's a lot of work to be done, but sometimes there's no work at all. There's still a lot of benefits, and it outweighs the bad. it's all about how you conduct yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i feel as if the management handled its employees well.

    Former Employee - Senior Vice President, Creative Director in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can confidently say that in the two roles I had Wells Fargo in corporate (not customer facing) departments they do play nice. They mean well, have good manners, and genuinely care about it's employees. They don't move too quickly so there is plenty of time to prepare for change. They try hard to communicate whats going on in the industry, the company and at a department level. I would work for Wells in again in a heart beat. Good, nice people with solid ethics.

    Cons

    They can be extremely slow. They lack innovative passion. I don't know of too many other company's that size that don't have an internal innovation lab. This would help attract younger employees, more creatives, and help retention
