    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, generally open. Leadership is generally receptive, with a few exceptions. Some of the business lines are very cool to work with and have very communal/friendly cultures, with few exceptions.

    Cons

    Watch out for managers who can be domineering and squash true innovation. A lot of them have been around for so long that they think they know everything in the best way it can be done - so much so that they will obliterate steps in a new and excitingly efficient direction simply because they think how it has always been done is the right way and only way.

    Advice to Management

    Watch who you hire into leadership. They steer the ship of the sub-culture of any group they lead, and so if care is not exercised, they can create a culture where it is not only difficult to succeed, it is impossible to innovate or improve.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wells Fargo

    Pros

    Generous paid time off; volunteering is encouraged; diverse networking opportunities from company-sponsored networking groups; 401k profit sharing; some departments and job roles allow for flexible shifts and ability to work remotely sometimes.

    Cons

    Leadership without authority is a bizz word and line associates are rated on it. The problem is management does not help associates develop this skill, or are even able to explain what it means or to give examples. This means many employees in some divisions are rated as poor performing in this area, but are not given the support or tools to develop.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time developing employees who want to grow and advance thier careers. This means honest and specific feedback, anbd help with identifying advancement opportunites within the department or company.
