    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.

    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.
