    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will work alongside some of the most intelligent people you will ever encounter. Work life balance is generally good compared to other financial institutions as is compensation.

    Cons

    There is a complete disregard for current risk management practices. When you walk in the door be prepared to work with a management structure that does not believe in the concept of controls or proactively monitoring risky behavior as most management has been in the same company for 10+ years so they know no better. Any kind of change either positive or negative is glacial, simple changes can take 6 months to a year to even begin implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that change has to come from the top down and often requires difficult conversations to be had.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This was a convenient and comfortable worksite with many perks.

    The employer acquired the former company and changed many things including compensation levels and institution IT systems leaving many people without work.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Great job for your resume - brand name that will get you interviews when you are ready to move on - really good training programs

    Cons

    Really long hours with little room to move up in the organization - analysts are essentially expected to find a new job after two years

    Advice to Management

    Enable analysts to communicate with management to improve operations. Should be able to hear from the lowest on the totem pole how to improve quality of job

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities for growth and professional development, great benefits. 16 weeks maternity leave and 401k matching up to 6%.

    Cons

    They should pay their employees more, bonus structure has been changed and employees are not able to make as much as they were able before. The base salary hasn't changed to make up for the bonus

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees before they decide to leave

    Pros

    Wells Fargo has a great culture. Majority of employees are driven and willing to help others realize their career goals when help or advice is sought. There are endless opportunities across various lines of business to advance one's career.

    Cons

    The general perception is that the bank is extremely conservative. I would not necessarily view this as a negative but that perception can impact how other banks or companies perceive your experience if you are looking to make a change later in your career. For example, if you want to move into cash flow lending, the general conservative attitude results in Wells passing on many cash flow deals which can limit this type of transaction experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment where employees can realize their goals and seize opportunities.
