Pros

There is a very strong corporate culture and name recognition. Accomplishments are publicly recognized and everyone is expected to work hard. It may seem very "rah-rah" but having now worked at a company with no corporate culture, I can appreciate the Wells environment.

Cons

Long hours are expected and the line between work and personal time is often blurred. Feedback to management is often not recognized or used for improvements. It is difficult to complete a long term project because the tenure of the sponsor (senior management) is usually only about a year, so priorities shift often.

Advice to Management

Promote from within when senior managers leave. Currently, when a new senior manager is brought in, he or she replaces all the direct reports and projects and initiatives get off track.

    Pros

    Highly profitable company with excellent senior management.

    Cons

    Employees overworked and middle management is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified middle managers that just don't excel at making profits and assessing credit risk. They must also possess the skills and desire to effectively manage employees.

    Pros

    Culture
    The people were extremely down-to-earth and not cut-throat at all. Almost everyone around me was a lifer with the intention of staying long-term.

    Work Life Balance
    It's an extremely friendly place for families and my co-workers were not ashamed to show that life was not all about work. There is an emphasis on community involvement as well.

    Pay
    I was very satisfied with the pay, but I heard that it's not always the case. I worked in Corporate, though. The pay may not be as good in the branches.

    Cons

    The culture is not very young and it's a very large company. If you prefer a dynamic, young environment where things move very quickly, this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
