    I have been working at Wells Fargo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to reinvent myself over and over at Wells. I started as a teller.

    We stay true to our vision and values. We don't waiver in Wealth Management the clients experience is first and foremost important.

    Cons

    As we keep up with client facing technology or internal technology could use improvement. Particularly around transparency of client information. And keeping in line with regulations .

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Technology is second to none in the banking world. Comprehensive onboarding training and solid benefits.

    Cons

    Although the pros listed above are pretty attractive, they lose all meaning when the company culture is unequivocally caustic. At all levels the culture is misogynistic, predatory (towards clients and employees), and at times, downright frightening. I have witnessed overt discrimination, harassment and bullying of women and minorities on a consistent basis. Unfortunately while Wells Fargo purports to have an anti-harassment and anti-retaliation policy, it is well known that reporting these incidents is career suicide, even for those not involved. Subsequently it has created an environment so toxic that it has given me no choice but to seek employment elsewhere.

    I came to Wells Fargo from a different bank to work with the elite in Banking and to grow my career. Unfortunately I would not recommend anyone subjecting themselves to this experience.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully this offers some additional awareness to the issues and behaviors that are so pervasive in this organization. Please see this as an opportunity for a complete overhaul of company culture.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefit package. Wells Fargo has very good training and really keeps their bankers up to date with underwriting skills and industry changes.

    Cons

    Lots of sales pressure. Although there were changes in a good way around sales goals, that is still the only thing/main topic managers what to talk about.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long term view of success. The business model is good but give folks the time needed to really get it running.

    Pros

    Wells Fargo has great name recognition in the field which makes it easy to get in the door. Also has regional offices so you aren't forced to work from home in most cases.

    Cons

    Very unorganized and constantly changing the way they want you to do business. Mid level Management has very little say in what your people do....I had to get permission from the VP of the company just to get a home printer. (Which he denied)

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    18 days of PTO your first year and you get it increase to 23 on your third. They match up 6% of your 401K.

    Cons

    Health insurance is too high. Retention is a problem with Wells Fargo. Employees are in and out of the bank. I work in a branch for 2 years and saw 8 of my coworkers left Wells Fargo. Short staff every quarter. You work a lot of overtime.

    Pros

    Pay was great... Benefits are fantastic as well and a great culture. This is a good place to work but retail is much less appealing

    Cons

    None so far the company has been great and like I said it is best if you are not on the retail side

    Advice to Management

    Keep crushing it Wells Fargo is the top bank in the world for a reason and it is because of the leadership at the top setting the tone.

    Pros

    Easy interview & quick decision
    Good work-Life balance.

    Cons

    Worst culture. People are dominant & escalate quicky to destabilize you. Totally un-Agile, Project manager has no authority & used only to schedule meetings.
    Not all departments are the same but community banking is extremely backward in PMO & has hundreds of processes that only slow down the project. The Manager I was reporting to was too bossy & abusive.
    If you are from the Agile world, please do not join. Too much of heirarchy & bossing around by those who have been here for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    PMO Resource management needs a cleanup.
    Please encourage transparency in management.
