    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    campus, Onsite Gym, Nice Cafeteria, location

    Cons

    For my project I am a contractor and it has not been a good experience. The culture is REALLY poor and the onboarding process consist of reading some slides. No company overview, team introductions, organizational overview. Been there two months and never once have I even had a one on one with my manager who is in another state.

     I get the project is full of contractors, but they go out of their way to make sure you don’t feel like you are part of the company. For example, if you are a contractor there are no assigned cubes (even though there are more than enough empty cubes.). You have to reserve a “flex cube” every day, so you’re rarely in the same spot. Even better there are more contractors than there are these “flex cubes”. So instead of being able to settle in to a place of your own, put up pictures, hang reference materials on your wall while your learning, use a whiteboard, you pack up all your stuff at the end of the day and unpack it the next morning. (Seriously Wells Fargo, who thought this was a good idea????)

    Nobody talks to each other, it feels like your working in a library, you just dread going to work every day.

    Management provides no direction or even really interacts with you. Just a bunch of project tracks doing their own thing.

    Don’t even think about questioning a process or bringing a best practice. You are just a contractor, what do you know?

    But worst of all, VERY few people are invested in their work. As someone who prides one self on going above and beyond. it’s really painful to be the only one that cares and I can’t even get a cube of my own.

    Advice to Management

    If you want great outcomes, it may be time to stop promoting people cause they have put in their time and start looking for qualified management that actually understand technology, wants to deliver great outcomes and grow their talent.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free wholesaler breakfasts and lunches on average 3 days per week.

    Cons

    No career advancement and management is only concerned about revenue producing personnel; not those that support them.

    Advice to Management

    Make more room for internal advancement.

    Don't tout the Next Generation agenda, and fail to hire for that agenda at the local branch levels.

    When you do hire for these initiatives, make sure the pool includes more than just the 20 year olds, but maybe some 30 and 40 year olds that still have a 25-30 year work life. They too, can be the next generation and have more life experience.

     Likewise, don't post internal positions that are already pegged for someone else. It wastes everyone's time, and get's their hopes up. It's also an unethical practice.

    Update your business model and your technology so it's more client friendly. Clients should be able to perform certain functions from their computer. e.g. opening new brokerage accounts, etc.

    Pros

    No sales goals any longer - for licensed bankers though there is an incentive still built in as an incentive for referred business to the Mortgage and Investment teams

    Cons

    Management SUCKS hugely. When it was Wachovia it was fine. Culture changed and they brain-wash new managers who have no Wachovia prior experience as they cannot stand alone based on HISTORY.

    Advice to Management

    Get real or leave the firm. Because you cannot keep lying to people and cover(up) your lies,
