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

    Pros

    stable employment, ok benefits, office in downtown SF.

    Cons

    technical skills are not rewarded but brown nosing upper management is highly effective strategy to climb corporate ladder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technical managers should have a clue about technology. The IT work culture does not attract the best and brightest. It attracts those looking for a 9 -5 job where you don't really need to work hard or be very proficient at what you do. Great place for a slacker who can BS. Allot of dead weight in IT just sitting around and getting in way of any progress for fear of being shown up.

    Pros

    Great staff, benefits, and overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    The goals and pace are definitely a bit hard to get used to. However, if you have the right manager who knows what they are doing then you can definitely breakthrough any barrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the suggestions of employees.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo invests and spends a lot of money on marketing the brand, image, and reputation in the public.

    Cons

    There are too many people in management and not enough workers. The managers take credits but blame on staff and throw them under the bus. There are deep office politics and favoritism all over at Wells Fargo. Management hires their children, friends and relatives, and they get off not doing their jobs and pushing off on the underlings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many people being hired based on relationships and connections at Wells Fargo. Nobody has the courage to speak out about this unfair employment practice.
