    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you have ambition, and a great work ethic, there are 9 retail positions to venture through. I started as a teller with ZERO banking experience, and because of relationships I built with my peers, the respect I gained within the district as well as the region, the leadership I provided on a daily basis and the trust that was earned, I was able to hold 6, different positions in less than 3 years. The company has great benefits, average pay, and many employee solutions and discounts to take advantage of. Not to mention the ability to move almost anywhere in the country and work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, with as large as Wells Fargo is, and the completely corporate structure, in the end, you are just as dispensable as the next team member. I am a living example of an extremely actively engaged employee, who spent each day coaching, learning, managing and growing those around me. An employee with Wells Fargo in a completely different city, who doesn't know me from Bob, was able to shockingly and without warning, make the decision to let me go from the company. There was and is still a shock wave sent through the region over this. Not even my closest and most respected peers were able to assist with the decision. I was looking to make Wells Fargo my long term career, and was an advocate for integrity and honesty within the daily operations. In the end, Wells Fargo lost a great contributor.

    Advice to Management

    Considering I was in management, my only advice would be in order to build a strong and successful team, you must make sure that you hire the right people, for the right jobs. Otherwise, you are in for a long time period of frustrations.


  2. "Great place for people who want to work in one place, never move, and have balance"

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

    Pros

    Most areas & managers allow flexible working hours and locations. Good time off benefits, 50% 401K matching and other small perks. Lots of "lifers" - people who have been here 10 - 25 years.

    Cons

    Over the last 5 years the company has been whittling away at the perks and benefits - no more subsidized food, less PTO, smaller merit increases, reduced space per employee - it's not as nice a place to work at as it used to be. Because so many people never leave, there's a bit of an incestuousness to the culture; many people are desensitized to the Wells culture because they've never really worked anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    The little AND big things matter - give us a few nice perks and a pleasant atmosphere to work in and you won't have to compete as much with compensation. But, take away the little things and people will want more money.
