    Pros

    Great culture! Very customer and employee-centric. By staying focused on the customer, Wells Fargo was able to grow income by growing revenue, rather than simply by cutting costs.

    Cons

    The organization has become perhaps too big to be able to sustain the culture that made it such a great corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Try to return to the culture of the old Norwest Bank and avoid the major mergers that divert resources away from keeping current customers happy and from keeping up with the competition on innovation.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo Treasury Management is a great department if you like hands on work. The Pay and Benefit package is competitve

    Cons

    The Leadership structure is often disjointed and changing and not transparent. Team Leads are always hounding you to "get back on the phone" even when you are following up on previous identified issues. They dont care about wanting to fix the problem correctly when identified, they are more concerned about their call metrics
