    I worked at Wells Fargo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    awesome workplace environment
    cliche but the people actually are awesome
    decent pay for work responsibilities

    Cons

    sometimes could get a little slow, the main reason for this which an intern must understand is that your direct managers cant necessarily invest a massive amount of time training you up for a position when you will be gone in just a few months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, wells fargo internship program was absolutely awesome, if you get the opportunity, absolutely take it

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

    Pros

    We try very hard to be the best team in banking. My personal team reflects the high standards that the world has for us as a company. It's not that we're the smartest, or the fastest, or the most tech-savvy individuals. We care. We care about our customers' experiences, we care about our communities, we care about the world around us and the people on our team. Our CEO has done a great job recently of promoting this culture and it has made a difference.

    My manager, her manager, and all the fine people on my team are wonderful to work with, respectful of others, ethical, honest, and make difficult choices because they're the right thing to do. I have a huge amount of respect for them, and also for the work we do.

    Cons

    I realize some customers and even team members have poor experiences at Wells Fargo, but my personal cons are pretty thin first-world type problems. Sometimes management doesn't understand what I do, which is rather technical. Sometimes it's difficult to gain buy-in on my ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace and recognize leaders who are great coaches, those who can coach team members to have great conversations with customers. Excuse managers who only ask for numbers from their teams and spend more time counting cats than coaching people. We are already doing this, and it's a marathon, not a sprint, but the faster this happens, the faster we will become the most respected company in the world.
