    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a good place to learn about the complexities of managing a large, sales-oriented business. It is very customer focused relative to other financial services companies of its size, and values thinking and doing across particular product lines to find better ways of creating and benefitting from value for customers. It is also not particularly difficult to manage time for the rest of your life there....

    Cons

    Your colleagues will generally be B players rather than superstars. I suspect they are better than the average worker, but still quite a ways from the very best and brightest in the world. While that means if you are an A player it's easy to outshine the majority of folks, it will not necessarily be easy to move around in new positions if you are really good at the one you have, as people will come to depend on you...

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on cultivating top-tier talent. Weed out average and below average employees. The company can get more done with fewer, smarter people who are willing to take a few more risks, think a bit bolder, innovate more.

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees. The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available. Highly engaged...

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time. Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company. No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.
