No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule, Telecommuting options, Education opportunities available, Working with a great teams. Family friendly. I enjoy working with team I have been a part of for quite a few years. There are plenty of classes offered via the learning center and plenty of opportunities to learn on the job.

Cons

Getting a promotion proves to be most difficult. Currently you need to prove you have already been doing the job for two years before actually getting promoted to that level. Raises have averaged 1 - 2 % for the last 10 years.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diversity: you won't find a company with MORE focus on diversity than Wells Fargo, maybe equal but few can compare.

    Reputation: of all the big banks and financial institutions, Wells Fargo is light years ahead of the competition when it comes to brand reputation, it's top notch.

    Innovation: they are the leader of financial companies.

    Tenure: you will find many team members who have been with the company fore more than 20 years.

    Cons

    All of this is my personal opinion, take it with a grain of salt, just know if one person is experiencing these things, then many probably are.

    Work /Life Balance: it used to be amazing but since the recent Wachovia acquisition, now much worse. Projects are piled on regularly.

    Advancement: many San Francisco positions are being or have been eliminated and are being replaced with new employees in less expensive cities like Des Moines, Charlotte, Phoenix, St. Louis or Minneapolis which in my opinion is a major loss in west coast "Silicon Valley" "thinking at light speed" type of talent.

    Perks: the perks that were there before are mostly gone due to cost cutting measures.

    Recognition: Wells Fargo used to rank tops in the nation and now many forms of recognition have been limited to "words of praise" only. (ie no more trips to Cancun, no gift cards for a job well done, nothing)

    Pace of Development: now slower than a snail. The company sometimes takes years to bring innovation to the marketplace because they fear releasing products and services that are not perfect. In the meantime many start up companies announce innovations before Wells Fargo leaving the bank to play "copy cat" and catch up.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to move company management to Charlotte, pay special attention to what happened to Bank of America when they relocated from San Francisco to Charlotte, B of A stock is now in the tank.

    Pros

    They tend to pay well.

    Cons

    Management wants everyone to be #1. There is only room for 1 person to be there.

    Advice to Management

    "Because I say so" is not a valid reason. Makes you seem unprofessional.
