    Pros

    Wells Fargo has really Good benefits. Also, You can move up, and around in the company, the 401k is good., and the pay is pretty good. There are so many entities of Wells Fargo, you can choose your area of expertise.

    Cons

    Sneaky upper management, a lot of favoritism. Sometimes, it’s not what you know, but who you know. Also, Wells has apparently stopped compensating employees additionally for being bilingual.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your people. Listen to your people. The people are what makes Wells Fargo.. If they are unhappy, how can they do their best to service the clients. Also, reassess some management, some only get positions because of who they know., and they have no idea of what is really good for the employees.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive Fun Culture, Customer-Centric, Training, Opportunity, Personal Financial Health Education, 401k Matching. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

    Cons

    Working for a company's sales department that is constantly in the news for sales practice scandals. The contact centers are completely reformed and have a focus on relationship management instead of sales. However, the news outlets make Wells Fargo seem like Public Enemy #1, and it is hard to admit who you work for when there is negative press on a monthly basis. Also, I started right before the big sales practices scandal broke and Wells Fargo is taking a very long time to figure out how sales commission is going to work since they no longer evaluate sales metrics. So pay has not been very competitive without it but it should be improving mid 2018.

    Advice to Management

    I think they know exactly what they need to do, and they are in the process of fixing everything. The contact centers are all on the same page. The big focus is getting branches up to par and inline with the practices that the contact centers display.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While the data analyst program did a great job of creating great relationships amongst the interns, some teams were amazing and others less so. The lack of diversity (both in culture and gender) on my team was disappointing. The work I did was fun for the first few weeks but grew dull quickly and felt as if it went completely unused.

    Other interns had a great time with cool and challenging projects, but a few of us had a less than great experience as far as the quality of work. It’s a fun internship, especially for a first time internship. Otherwise I would keep my options open.

    Cons

    >Had to chase management around for code reviews
    >Insignificant projects are assigned to interns
    >Lack of diversity in teams (gender, culture, age)
    >Boring cubicle life

    Advice to Management

    It’s a bank- they’re great for what it is. It’s definitely not a cutting edge tech company.
