    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It a great company if you want to grow within. Promotions!!

    Cons

    The sales goals are little to much. Less training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation for sales should be more.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    it's what you imagine when you fantasize about working for a corporation. Looking over the city, very technological environment. you're very well compensated and have a very stress free workspace and co-workers

    Cons

    Sometimes there's a lot of work to be done, but sometimes there's no work at all. There's still a lot of benefits, and it outweighs the bad. it's all about how you conduct yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i feel as if the management handled its employees well.

    Current Employee - Cx Senior Producer in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair compensation,
    Generous benefits package
    Variety of work environments available

    Cons

    Technology teams are anti-innovation; not able to upgrade user experience because of obsolete skills and methodologies; IT leaders too focused on maintaining deprecated back-end systems - slow or unwilling to invest in front-end developers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the technology teams that support customer facing web applications accountable for user experience - Stop taking users for granted!
    Fire any application manager that doesn't make delivering value to users a priority.
    Involve Ux in technology roadmap planning.
    Update hiring policy and find new, daring, diverse tech leaders.

    I worked at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    The people here are professional, laid-back, and respectful toward one another. Culturally, there's a lack of aggression and sense of "hierarchy," in a good way. It's inclusive. Even though I was a contractor, I felt like I was always treated with genuine respect and appreciation. Deadlines are reasonable. It's a bank, so it's not always the most creative work, but good and even great work does rise to the top.

    Cons

    I honestly can't really think of any.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    No need to work at all!!!!!!

    Cons

    I was on a consulting job here for 19 months. They exclusively hire incompetents. They are in love with them and hire them full time. You cannot get a system administrator to create an ID for you within 2 months. Their entire database is made of notepads and excel sheets. Your work never gets appreciated and the only thing that matters is soaping and buttering process of superiors. They bring in very cheap contractors from all over who are least motivated to work and laugh at you when you actually make little effort to do so.

    Not worth getting hired here at all, if you want any sort of career progression.

    Pros

    Free checking account.. serious, it's free. The really motivate you to do more with your life. The more time spent there, the more time wasted.

    Cons

    Everything. The place so much importance on customer service that it's become this massive ugly thing. And the sales.. they really don't mind the fact that you take advantage of old ladies that don't speak English.. give them some Remittance accounts... makes the branch look better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off the WOW.
