Pros

Opportunities abound, committment to diversity, and people make Wells Fargo a great place to start your career. Simply express your desire to pursue a certain career path and managers are happy to assist. Multiple company opportunities are presented to improve your personal skills.

Cons

The size of the company and corporate bureaucracy make it difficult to impact change. Simple solutions unfortunately take months and sometimes years of "meetings and approvals" before significant changes can be made to improve business practices.

Advice to Management

Continue to push the cross sell sales environment. It works.

    Pros

    The benefits are wonderful and better than most companies. As well as the Paid Time Off. Wells Fargo is very interested in keeping a variety of people and is committed to diversity. There are many options to volunteer in things as far reaching as a Gay Pride Parade to Habitat for Humanity. Also, Wells Fargo allows life partners to attend Wells sponsored events.

    Cons

    The budget cuts make it impossible to purchase even t-shirts for new employees or take them to lunch. Also, makes it impossible to hire people as needed and give them raises as necessary. The recognition and compensation plans are minimal and can be very misleading and discouraging. The current quarterly sales compensation plans are too long for Generation Y employees and we are seeing a huge decrease in motivation due to it.

    Advice to Management

    Our leadership (community bank president) and above, need a serious reality check about the necessity of spending money to increase the look of our banks and the need to hire more staff and pay more to keep good staff. Also, we need to revamp the compensation plan. Generation X and Y employees find (for the most part) quarterly compensation plans too extensive to make them motivational. We need to move into a monthly program as places like US Bank and Bank of America are considering.

    Pros

    The workplace promotes a wonderful working atmosphere. Everyone around is very nice and helpful at all times. Management treats their employees with respect. Company promotes events that reach out to the community for us to give back. Their benefits are great with plenty PTO days along with a matching 401K and Cash Balance Plan. Tons of internal job openings if you want to transfer around within the company.

    Cons

    Annual reviews are great but it does not reflect the salary increases. Compensation should be better and more competitive within industry.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your hard working employees fairly.
