    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are plentiful and generous, though they have declined since Wells fargo's acquisition of Wachovia. Still, WF offers some of the best benefits I've seen in a large corporation. Job opportunities are plentiful in this international company, especially in technology, where initial-hire salaries are very competitive.

    Cons

    In-house promotions result in small wage increases. To earn what you're worth after several years experience, you'll have to look elsewhere. Being the huge corporation that it is, the scope of most technology jobs is very small. Most developers, for instance, will spend all their time doing one thing and will have very little opportunity to explore new technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Promote in-house, and offer competitive wage increases on promotion. Your employees love the company, but it's difficult to remain here when opportunities abound outside the bank with better wages for similar experience.

    Sometimes, with a large company yo feel your contributions don't make a big difference.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depends on the manager you have, you may have an opportunity for personal or professional growth. Ability to reach out to senior managers across other divisions for guidance.

    Cons

    Red tape and politics. Depends on the manager again. HR supports the manager more than the employee

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the kind of people you surround yourself with. You may not have any idea what is really going on in the company if you don't keep your eyes open and interract with the hourly staff.

    Pros

    Benefits are good - generous PTO, lots of insurance choices, 401(k) match + discretionary profit sharing, education assistance. Employees get good deals on financial products. Work/life balance is important, some departments have flexibility for work from home. I've had lots of professional growth at Wells.

    Cons

    Since the Wachovia merger, teams are more fragmented and don't communicate/interact as well. Atmosphere feels more isolated. Difficult to move up or laterally to other positions/teams. Management is less connected, partly due to geographic separation. Lots of uncertainty about future job security, leading to low morale in places.

    Advice to Management

    More townhalls from 3-up and higher senior managers - we have no idea how they spend their days to justify 6- and 7-figure salaries. Communicate more to team members about business decisions and challenges, as well as future job prospects, particularly during merger integration.
