    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large organization with extensive reach to numerous clients. Competitive pay for results achieved. Multiple lines of business providing opportunities to service clients and find opportunities within the organization.

    Cons

    It's a large organization. Like any large business, at times the left hand isn't aware what the right hand is doing leading to groups working at cross purposes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on businesses and employees creating long term relationships rather than focusing on short term financial results.

    Pros

    Good entry level job in corporate world, upward mobility, flexible schedule, benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Large portion of bonus not based upon individual skill but on team results. Continuous change in policy due to senior management. Pay is not representative for what is asked in certain roles or results. High Turnover

    Advice to Management

    Make individual efforts count more, lessen the amount of policy change that occurs quarterly. Continue providing the benefits and upward mobility.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training that you receive from this program is very comprehensive. You have access to senior members of the company. The office culture is excellent.

    Cons

    While San Francisco is a really great place to work, it is expensive. The internship pays much better than others, but it is very difficult to afford to live in the city.

    Advice to Management

    The training program that you provide the summer financial analyst is very helpful. I wish there was someone within the company or office that assisted in finding housing for interns or full-time analysts, especially if they have to travel from out of state.
