    Current Employee - Business Intelligence Manager in Des Moines, IA

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits. Culture is great and full of team players. Wells Fargo encourages your personal development and growth, which I really liked. They also encouraged you to seek new opportunities within the company as you developed so could be where you would add the most value to the company

    Cons

    20% of the people do 80% of the work but the annual compensation doesn't reflect this. Slow to address performance issues up and down the chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to identify and address issues with management skill sets. Sub-par management can have an adverse negative affects on a functional area. Listen to people when they raise concerns about their managers. It's easy to put it off until later and even ignore it altogether, but you'll be happier in the long run if you take the hard steps to address concerns. I always took the time to address my people's concerns and I even had to manage someone through the performance improvement process which ended in my having to let that person go. It was a hard, painful and long process, but my team was much healthier in the end and still a strong presence after I took a new opportunity.

    Pros

    Fantastic Company. The head of corporate banking is a great mentor. Benefits are good. Great experience even if you choose to leave banking.

    Cons

    There is still a bit of an old boys club mentality amongst some of the middle management in certain groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wells is a great place to work in a lot of ways. Watch the attitude of some middle management.

    ● lay offs
    ● treats temps as step children
    ●if position is being laid off hard to get different position within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ●Your employees are loyal to you. (Even the temps) should find a better way to avoid the lay offs especially when you have other positions available. Why not train the staff you have versus hiring outside people.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my position helping my clients.

    Cons

    Only one challenge, the decision of relocating the job to Dallas, and not allowing the employees still keep their positions working in their current positions. The decision didn't make sense considering you hired more people after the layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you know you have good employees, don't lose them because their your money makers. Think strongly on the decisions you make on a business needs.
