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

    Pros

    I have the autonomy to make decisions and do my job. The culture is great and my team is a pleasure to work with. The benefits are good. I joined in the midst of a re-branding and my observation is that they are absolutely dedicated and serious about driving positive change across the enterprise and making this a better bank.

    Cons

    There’s a bit of bureaucracy here, but that is too be expected. Some employees have anxiety about the downsizing that has been made very public.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work on a very diverse team with members across the world.
    - Exposure to large scale application development where multiple teams collaborate from different angles on one project
    - Challenging innovations and exposure to some modern trends in design
    - Friendly and involved management with realistic goals
    - An understanding of the importance of security and quality assurance helping to facilitate creating outstanding application systems
    - The right amount of meetings to keep everyone apprised without stealing too much time from the actual work day.

    Cons

    - Bureaucracy creates a layer of obfuscation that can be cumbersome to navigate or understand.
    - Delays in the project due to how slow funding and tech support is due to the bureaucracy.
    - Funding problems put contractors and intellectual assets at risk due to losing people when there are shortages and gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people are assets that can not be as 'plug and play' as the applications we create. When you lose someone with inherit knowledge of a system it can take upwards of a month for someone else to get up to the same speed once you even find the appropriate person. With that in mind funding should be secured at least a month before the end of a project with planed weaning of contractors. For the most part Wells Fargo does everything right except in the case of not treating people like faceless drones... but that's every corporation.

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

    Pros

    Atmosphere is friendly. Talented coworkers. Support generally provided when needed. People don't seem to hate their lives.

    Cons

    In some parts of the bank, bureaucracy seems out of control. Also seems like certain parts of the bank don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just throw money at consultants to try and solve the latest crisis. Look for long term, sustainable solutions, even if they take some time.
