    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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    Great work environment. Opportunity to learn and receive training.

    Cons

    Worked there 3 times on separate contract assignments. Lack opportunity for mobility when an assignment is ending. Lack of opportunity to convert full time.

    Advice to Management

    When you go through the process of hiring a contractor multiple times, you should utilize the talent you already have rather than forcing that contractor to go through the hiring process from the outside again.

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

    Pros

    If you have a decent manager that has your back, the job can be rather enjoyable, with lots of opportunity for taking on more responsibility. Due to 2016 scandal, WF is less sales focused as it used to be from a policy standpoint.

    Cons

    If you have a bad manager, or if your manager’s manager is terrible, it can negatively impact your ability to move up. In that situation, the only thing to do to keep getting promoted is to move laterally to another location or leave WF for another bank. Very much a retail oriented job.

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

    Pros

    It was a great job. Good work/life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    No longer the same Wells Fargo Risk environment. Recent layoffs in the risk organization have staff questioning their value to the organization. The personnel were identified according to the state where they live while performing their “remote” work and not according to their performance. So some of the top performers according to 2018 reviews are now headed out the door.

    Advice to Management

    If layoffs are required, then do the mature/responsible thing and make your decision based on performance and not location. That is why you have a management position, so act like a grown-up and make decisions that are “best” for the company.

    Remember - “random” selection is not natural “selection”.
