I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

The majority of employees and contractors are nice, smart people. Expected work and results are reasonable. Work/life balance is very good.

Cons

Wells is attempting to implement a pay scale for contractors that is the same in all US cities. However, this pay scale is equivalent to Charlotte pay, which is completely unreasonable in a city like SF. Managers have told me that they cannot hire quality contractors because the candidates find higher paying contracts elsewhere. Or, they take the lower paying contract with Wells and leave as soon as they find something that pays better. This year I have been quoted hourly rates that are up to $15/hour LESS than I was making 7 years ago for them.

Advice to Management

Pay contractors a fair wage for the city they are working in, not a flat US rate. This is going to backfire miserably and is already starting to do so.
