Pros

Working at Wells Fargo gives a nice experience and environment. You are exposed to nice people.

Cons

Conditions aren't that great. Guys down in HR are working on top of a trash cans in the truck loading zone.

Advice to Management

Get people out of the flipping trash in the back and get them some real jobs.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are great. The company is strong and stable. There are many job types and opportunities within the company. It's a great place to get experience.

    Cons

    There is an internal policy that limits growth of the employees to about 15% for internal promotions. This isn't an issue if you join the company at a reasonable market rate, but if you are planning on starting at the bottom and trying to work your way up, you will quickly find that you will always be at the bottom. The consensus from employees I have spoken with is that the best way to earn a respectable salary is to leave the company and come back at a decent rate. I know two individuals who did this and doubled their salary in one year, keeping in mind that they were severely underpaid to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a better culture of talent retention. Too many great employees leave because of the rigid compensation policy. Just because you get a bargain rate on an employee to begin with doesn't mean that you should hold them at the bottom for the rest of their career. The smart employees will always leave for better pay, and you will be left with the least ambitious, least talented people working for you for the long term. This does not seem to be a very good recipe for success.

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

    Pros

    - Worked with some very professional people while there.
    - Stable technical infrastructure.
    - Challenging projects.

    Cons

    - Timelines sometimes ignored when very strong evidence to push back was presented from a Technical perspective. Later it came back to bite.
    - A clear separation between contractors and FTE's appeared after purchase of Wachovia. Contractors were sometimes placed away, other side of a room or floor, from FTE team members that they once sat beside. Practice decreased the value of a cohesive work environment.
    - 18 Month Rule: After 18th months of contracting...so long for 6 mths. They loose a lot of knowledge capital as well as critical project time to onboard and have new contractor up to speed.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the "18 Month Rule" and just hire quality personnel. Shift them from line of business to line of business as needed. Abandoning this rule would prevent the local market from being over flooded with unemployed workers and its negative effects on the local economy. It’s not rocket science...it’s just banking.
