I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great pay, especially considering lack of experience upon entering company. Many opportunities for bonuses and advancement. Loan processing is a pretty simple job when the workload is average. So many other perks depending on how fun your manager is such as many free meals from good restaurants, company outings (that are much more fun than it sounds), free products from Wells Fargo and affiliates every once in a while, access to company sponsored events, numerous discounts from programs offered by other companies like best buy, target, apple, IBM, etc. the list goes on.

Cons

Policy changes are massive and often. Decisions are made so far above your manager's head by people that have no connection to your actual job duties, so that when these changes inevitably complicate your job further, there's no point in discussing them. You just have to roll with the punches. Also, while decisions for promotion and bonuses are usually made by your manager or his/her manager, decisions for layoffs are made at that same ethereal level where even the person that basically runs the entire building you work in has no say. When your time is up, it's simply up. Also there's not a whole lot of job security in the mortgage department but that's hardly their fault.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions for layoffs based on performance, not seniority. Otherwise, keep up the good work.
