    Pros

    Great benefits. Paid volunteer time and paid holidays

    Cons

    All male management (in my team), cut throat work environment, statistic based rating system. Favoritism is clear. Expectations are not clearly stated to the whole team.

    Advice to Management

    A little competition is healthy but you’ve made it so that everyone is throwing each other under the bus. Teamwork is encouraged but then you say we rely on one another too much. Too many conflicting messages received.

    Pros

    Good benefits like tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    There is some favoritism and some employees feel unimportant

    Advice to Management

    The new policies for district managers that have them only communicate with branch managers make all other employees feel inferior

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities
    OK benefits
    Allows 16 hours volunteer time

    Cons

    Upper management, their superiors, and higher are corrupt as heck! The so called change only impacts community banking while other divisions of Wells Fargo operate under the old environment. Partner channels have ridiculous goals and constantly lie to CB partners to achieve SALES and REVENUE. If you want to get micromanaged, ridiculed behind closed doors, and be affiliated with sub par, classless people - join this bank. The things i have witnessed and continue to experience is crazy, unethical, and not aligned with the new core values WF continues to market. ALL BS... and if you are business owner, RUN FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY! And i would not trust any money with any advisors either. WF continues to hire unqualified candidates as no one wants to taint their name working for this company - i'm leaving soon but scared working for WF could have damaged my reputation. And if you are a minority business owner, do not ... DO NOT bank with this company!!!

    Advice to Management

    Leave, you all are corrupt individuals and contradict everything you say by your gutless actions.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor

    Pros

    Periods of little work to catch your breath

    Cons

    The Corporate Trust Services makes you feel like a robot in competition with your coworkers to get enough work complete fast enough. They are moving towards fully outsourcing all work to India and the harsh changes between overtime and nearly no work to do are hard to maintain.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours, that is literally it.

    Cons

    I feel the need to be completely honest here before another poor post grad kid with a masters in finance is sucked in to this place. It's a boring, data entry job. You are doing the same task over and over again, some are easier than others but overall you are doing the same one thing for 8 hours a day. Management is so beyond removed. You will have either a micromanaging fly for a manager or a completly checked out manager who knows how boring the work here is. There is no room for growth or skill development other than excel.
    You can do literally a whole day without seeing anyone in your team, division, or department. You are busy for 2 weeks then have absolutely, literally, nothing to do for another 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Just relocate this job offshore honestly. You are hiring kids with MASTERS degrees and paying them diddly squat and they are performing data entry. This is not a real job for someone looking to have any sort of career.
