    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I been with WFB for almost nine years. It is a lot to learn from your daily work, every day there is something new.

    Cons

    The sales goal and customer service rating is unrealistic, all numbers game. However, when I took the job, I have to do what the company requires. The management is pushing us every day, no matter how good was your last performance. If you argue that the goal is too hard to achieve, the manager will threaten you with words as "termination, insubordination, formal warning, and no bonus even though u achieve the bonus level." Managers always play favoritism, if she/he didn't like you, no matter how good is your performance, you will not get promoted to the next level. In WFB rules are set, but not carry about by the managers. Every managers have their own set of rules, and sometimes those rules are conflict with the company rules. When you complain it to the HR department, no one cares, and when it suppose to be anonymous, sorry your manager will find out who was the person that file the complain. I will not recommend anyone to work for this company for their long turn career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to mange your team more professional and care about your team members not just the sales number and every little detail of the survey paper works. When you have a good working environment and be patient, the performance will improve. Your workers are human not salves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    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.
