    Pros

    The management is easy to work with and the ability to move yourself up is there if you like the path that is laid out.

    Cons

    The size and speed of a company this size is crippling sometimes, there not a lot of urgency for tech development which makes doing your job more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Great experience with the management team. The organization and and division management could you development. Customers don't understand it, employees barely understand it, and it inhibits business on a regular basis.

    Pros

    I like the potential opportunities and the fact the company is financially sound. They have right sized as they have made acquisitions and have a long tenured workforce.

    Cons

    Large, virtual workforce. Constantly on the phone versus in person interactions. Some of the facilities are large and outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Work on on-boarding process as it gives a new employee the wrong impression...felt like a step back in time. Continue to support the virtual culture as it is supportive of a work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great company values. Great benefits. Advancement can come easy. Wells Fargo in whole, has tons of opportunity outside of retail that allows for advancement as well.

    Cons

    Company values compared to what the retail store objectives are can be misconstrued.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the company values and not just the sales that need to be produced.

    Pros

    Solid benefits package with 401(k) match and PS contribution. Company is very much pro-GLBT.

    Cons

    Department was poorly managed. People with distinct skill A were forced to also do Tasks B and C...even though there were people who were good at (and preferred to do) Tasks B and C. Not receptive to different corporate cultures or methods. My unit was cobbled together from three groups after mergers & acquisitions. Only the legacy Wells group had any actual clout or say over anything. Promotions are non-existent. Raises are an insult.

    Advice to Management

    When you have an employee who has hit a rough patch in life, try to be supportive of them. Maybe send well wishes instead of a pink slip.

    Pros

    They have a decent bonus program if you are interested in never leaving the building.

    Cons

    Simply over worked. Wells Fargo does not see you as a person just a number. The company or teams do not work together to help the customer. They work against each other. After working there I will never bank there.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to help your employees feel appreciated and to help with team building within the company.
