I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Most areas & managers allow flexible working hours and locations. Good time off benefits, 50% 401K matching and other small perks. Lots of "lifers" - people who have been here 10 - 25 years.

Cons

Over the last 5 years the company has been whittling away at the perks and benefits - no more subsidized food, less PTO, smaller merit increases, reduced space per employee - it's not as nice a place to work at as it used to be. Because so many people never leave, there's a bit of an incestuousness to the culture; many people are desensitized to the Wells culture because they've never really worked anywhere else.

Advice to Management

The little AND big things matter - give us a few nice perks and a pleasant atmosphere to work in and you won't have to compete as much with compensation. But, take away the little things and people will want more money.
