    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    great brand, strong marketing, lots of customers to assist, has better integrity and honesty than most other large banks (but that is not saying much).

    Cons

    poor and disconnected management. Most managers have no idea what is happening on the front lines, they are focused on reports/cross sells etc...and have no idea what their team needs to be successful. Pay/bonuses/benefits continue to decline every year, while micromanagement and monitoring all you do goes up. They continue to layoff people to have a more "lean" workforce, but this just equals more work for less pay...

    Advice to Management

    focus on retaining work force and don't be afraid to invest in them, its not an encouraging feeling when you receive the company news letter that Wells Fargo has earned another quarter of highest revenue (for the 8th straight qtr) in company history and then immediately after you get called into a room with your team to hear that they are cutting your pay and asking you to do more.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    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.
