    Current Employee - Applications SYSTEMS ENGINEER 

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Loved the people on the team I worked with, and most of the customers we supported. Some very good people work here. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, constant re-organization, restriction of access/tools without corresponding restriction of responsibilities, lip service regard for personal well-being and time management, little attention paid to advice/recommendations, unrealistic work loads with irrelevant timelines, excessive and superfluous fixation on corporate training unrelated to job function. Changed managers 4 times in 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that actually have to do the work associated with the initiatives/projects you decide on. Better communication at C- or D- level when proposing initiatives to avoid conflicts of timelines. Live your stated values and realize when culture doesnt coincide.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a giant company and experiences vary greatly. The work life balance I experienced there was fantastic. You could work from home occasionally, there wasn't much pressure to stay late or work through the weekends. Everyone was super happy to be there. The bureaucracy (some people don't like the red tape) did function to ensure that employees were treated fairly.

    Cons

    It's not a technology company. The main applications that the bank depends on were patchwork assembled and maintained by team after team of contractors trying to maintain what had become a rats nest. There was a decent amount red tape that prevented people doing anything new or innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generous paid time off (PTO) Good health care benefits They match contributions of up to 6% of your salary to your 401K Flexible schedule Work at home opportunity, although this appears to be coming to an end

    Cons

    Promotion to exempt position may result in less overall pay when factoring loss of overtime pay. Training options can be limited due to lack of travel dollars and unwillingness to allow employees to attend conferences, regardless of relevance. Work at home option subject to revocation without consideration of performance.
