Pros

At wells fargo there are many reasons to work here. For one, the diversity here is the best in the industry, the shear amounts of diversity and openness is unsurpassed. Also, depending on what group you are in, the dress code is VERY laxed for a bank (Jeans, T-shirt is acceptable). Also, some offices have fooseball tables/pool tables for the people (wholesale side). as with any big company, thsi could vary group to group, however except from the finance heavy areas, many workers work remotely, as well as get very lenient PTO. Speaking of PTO....25 days + 1 day at home a week is fantastic.

Cons

Big company, and everything that comes with it

Advice to Management

Celebrate even the small wins, and stay very connected to the employees. Dont keep it hierarchical

    Pros

    Wells Fargo encourages a good mix of work/life balance. Obviously it depends on the group and management, but I have never had a problem taking days off or even large blocks of vacation (e.g., 3 weeks) at a time. Having 5 weeks of PTO is outstanding, and I work from home 2x per week. The senior management is very competent - proven by 20 years of results through various economic cycles. Overall a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Obviously it's big, and it's a bank, so red tape is inevitable. There's a lot of process and procedure, but I think that's inevitable with the size of company and in financial services.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the same track that Kovacevich was on - don't overspend for acquistitions; think about integrations carefully; lend conservatively; and focus on hiring and retaining the best people.

    Pros

    5 weeks vacation
    Excellent benefits
    telecommute when appropriate

    Cons

    The company has high turnover amongst professional positions
    Low salaries and management's denial that salaries are not competitive
    Strong bias against employees for being over 30 in age - the company spends too much time praising the under 30 population.
    High pressure, high stress.
    Constantly changing the process - overprocessing topics to death.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the salary issue and the turnover will stop. The bank needs tenured employees with history. The industry is complicated and having seasoned employees is a strong asset.
