Pros

There is a very strong corporate culture and name recognition. Accomplishments are publicly recognized and everyone is expected to work hard. It may seem very "rah-rah" but having now worked at a company with no corporate culture, I can appreciate the Wells environment.

Cons

Long hours are expected and the line between work and personal time is often blurred. Feedback to management is often not recognized or used for improvements. It is difficult to complete a long term project because the tenure of the sponsor (senior management) is usually only about a year, so priorities shift often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within when senior managers leave. Currently, when a new senior manager is brought in, he or she replaces all the direct reports and projects and initiatives get off track.

    Pros

    The company is stable financially. Working here you do not need to wory about the company going out of business.

    Cons

    The goals they set for their employees are not workable. The company does not have realistic expactions and goals for there employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has to much emphasis on sales , and not enough on service. They open up a lot of accounts but close just as many because of lack of service.

    Pros

    good benefit package (but not sure about the new hires after the financial crisis as some of it was already getting cut mid-2008), getting exposure at different function areas/departments after a year or so is generally encouraged at the company level (but it really depends on your immediate manager), employee recognition program that allows acknowledgement even among peers (showing your fellow colleagues some appreciation when being assisted),

    Cons

    lower management lacks of professionalism & mgmt skills; a well-developed internal training system couldn't get fully utilized because staff development is at the bottom of managers' priority list; politics & bureaucracies rull

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR should resume the exit interview process to gain insights & feedbacks if WF really cares to retain talents
