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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, processes and collaboration are fairly buttoned up. PTO, diversity and generally high calibre Team Members. Many Team Member support activities.

    Cons

    The title says it all. For years I worked with this overwhelming sense that I could not really trust the organization. I could not put a finger on it. I was not alone in this - there were many very talented people who ultimately did not want to 'play the game' - a game where the school you went to was more important than the ethical ground you stood when it came to prioritizing customers first. Silent toxicity. Yes,... a company needs to look at the bottom line. Yes, growth is an implicit and necessary goal to sustain an organization in the competitive environment. But at what expense? And how many amazing Team Members were managed out because they raised concerns, on her executive level? Quite a few. Ultimately this was a house of cards. A classic covertly narcissistic organization, that had a very nice window dressing - a branding / PR image of purity and wholesomeness. That honestly, is the most dangerous and dysfunctional kind. And any means to rectify the reputational hit from last summer should now under scrutiny.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons above. However, am not very confident that you'll really open you eyes. Money does speak. As stewards of money it's imperative that ethical values be ingrained from the inside out (recall our reading of Covey's 7 Habits - or was that just lip service?) - Clear out the top management and really examine the values if you want to sustain the brand. And consider the possibility that 'top' school graduates... may not (always) be the best input in strategic planning. Listen to your customers - really listen and really care. The Millennials are much smarter that's you think.

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

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees. The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available. Highly... engaged and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time. Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company. No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.
