    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good, support for employees is good, benefits are decent. The bank is large, but reasonably well run and conservative, so it will be around for the long haul. It's not going to be the fastest moving, but that is part of it's stability. The people are generally good adn the company does seem to value them more than other companies.

    Cons

    very large and bureacratic. Compliance issues are a huge headache right now, and if you are reasonably innovative, you will be frustrated many times in trying to implement your ideas. There are not immediate consequences for incompetence or failure.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos...faster than the current initiatives. You can spend a lot of time doing something that others have already done, but in another area.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for less 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 and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    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.
