Great place for people who want to work in one place, never move, and have balance

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are okay. Hard to find enough Pro's to meet the minimum.

    Cons

    Technology behind the times, allow bullying of staff by junior managers and do not investigate or do anything about complaints. Do not listen to employees, overworked staff and not paid for the overtime if you are in "exempt" status, but hourly staff must have overtime approved. Do not hire qualified people, therefore, divisions become revolving doors. One department had 10 people in six years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the roses, Wells Fargo is not the best.
