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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo provides a strong team environment but allows for significant autonomy within a given role. WF is technologically advanced and willing to embrace technology to increase efficiency. Overall culture encourages learning and career growth.

    Some positions have limited growth opportunities for upward career movement, which is typical of any bank.

    The cut back on incentive bonuses really has hurt your employees. Also, allow more work from home options.

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

    Pros

    good benefits, above average compensation

    Cons

    The operations area is like a factory. Associates are expected to simply do their work. There is no incentive to go above and beyond because it is simply not recognized. If you don't have a family and like overtime, this is the place for you! Departments are under-staffed, overworked and not at all appreciated. Management does not listen to, much less address, worker concerns. Good luck getting time off or plan it well in advance. Everything is micro-managed and thinking outside the box is strongly discouraged. Wells Fargo has yet to realize what may have worked well out west does not translate well back east.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates. We may know something!
