Current Employee - Valuations Analyst

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

Pros

Good benefits. Big company, so I've had luck in decent groups with good managers that are very flexible with family/work arrangements. The hierarchy is being flattened out, getting rid of unneeded... middle managers.

Cons

Jobs lower in the ranks are being automated, so it may be harder to get in on the bottom floor (as the bottom floor is disappearing.) And obviously the retail sales divisions have had problems that... have been in the news.
