    Current Employee - Operational Risk Consultant IV in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo has great branding and a great reputation.
    The Pros for my position were flexible work hours, teleworking as needed, and I had the technology and tools to perform my job. I had a great team of people although toward the end it got top heavy with too many managers and not enough change and improvement.

    Cons

    Too big to really get a feel for all lines of business. You'd think that there would be a lot of opportunity to move and advance, but there isn't. At least not in the IT / Infosec world. Didn't feel like there was a career path for me. All the internal job postings are a waste of time because the hiring manager already has someone they know in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more career growth, actually implement a development plan. HR needs to get involved with the internal job postings more and less on the hiring manager. They can't be playing favorites like they do. Ultimately I got more interest in my resume externally than internally even though I was more than qualified for the positions that I applied for. It's bad when you lose good talent.

  7. The company sets you up for success. However, the management is a toss-up.

    Current Employee - Teller

    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are absolutely wonderful. As a part time teller I make 11.33 an hour plus bonuses and have dental and vision that is unheard of. The company gives you all of the tools you need to succeed and really do work on advancing you through the company as long as you're putting in the effort.

    Cons

    The management at my branch is terrible. They have very negative energy and are horrible at making you feel good about the things that you do well. They are very good at making you feel bad about small mistakes and discrediting the hard work that you do. However, the district manager is AMAZING and many of the surrounding managers that I've gotten to work with are wonderful people. I just got stuck at a branch with bitter and egotistical management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. Congratulate them on their good work and use positive constructive criticism when necessary without dwelling on it for too long. Allow the workers to feel important and in that way they will want to work for you and the company.

  8. Happy Employee

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

    Pros

    Large company (270,000+ employees) so there's always a lot of job openings. Lots of opportunities for development in the company.

    Cons

    Pay raises are usually pretty minimal, so it can be hard to increase your takehome pay without actually getting promoted or moving into another job that comes with a larger pay increase
