    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can confidently say that in the two roles I had Wells Fargo in corporate (not customer facing) departments they do play nice. They mean well, have good manners, and genuinely care about it's employees. They don't move too quickly so there is plenty of time to prepare for change. They try hard to communicate whats going on in the industry, the company and at a department level. I would work for Wells in again in a heart beat. Good, nice people with solid ethics.

    Cons

    They can be extremely slow. They lack innovative passion. I don't know of too many other company's that size that don't have an internal innovation lab. This would help attract younger employees, more creatives, and help retention

    Pros

    I loved working for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage because they consistently provided extensive training and education that directly affected my daily work responsibilities.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is a fast paced environment for professionals willing to do whatever it takes to succeed and help families succeed financially. If you're not an A+ personality type who loves sales...you may not want to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop dedicated, loyal employees instead of letting new outside executives affect your retention of them.
