    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees. The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available. Highly engaged...

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time. Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company. No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The company as a whole is always looking forward and trying to stay on the cutting edge of the banking industry. It has strong processes and outlines to help establish roles. Strong benefits with a very competitive 401k plan, tutition reimbursement and great PTO given.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo is going through a very dramatic change process and has made it difficult to help customers with the focus being on making regulators happy. This has turned into a difficult time because you have to jump through multiple hoops to do basic things for customers.

    Pros

    Great Vacation Time Package Maternity and Paternity Leave Standard benefit perks Good management

    Cons

    You aren’t rewarded for staying in the same position, the way you are rewarded financially is by trying to get promoted, that is the only way to really grow how much your making there isn’t much incentive to stay in the same position for more than 2 years or so.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to incentivize branch managers so that turnover isn’t high to other competitors or bigger branches
