    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    large benefit package ( very costly though), probably never have a run on their funds.

    Cons

    Management is clueless, upper management only cares about their bonuses, and they foster backstabbing, lying and forcing products customers don't want on them all while pressuring employees to meet unobtainable bonus goals ( but all management treats these "bonus goals" as the bottom line, meet them or get fired. Ethical behavior is frowned upon, upper management employees have no ethics, but lower level employees are expected to meet ridiculous numbers while maintaining a much higher level of ethics than anyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think about how each decision you make will effect customers, employees and your reputation

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to grow. 401k options are good. Array of products especially in business lending, are great.

    Cons

    In retail, relationship banking is not a priority, selling "widgets" are. Store mgrs are given a lot of autonomy, so they can be your best friend or worst enemy. So far two mgrs I have worked with, leave a lot to be desired. Health benefits just took a big turn for the worst in 2014.
