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

    Pros

    constant stream of pay check with nothing to look forward

    Cons

    Politics, cheating customers and corruption are the core values. Corruption, is what made me leave the company. My manager whom i reported was remote in SF California. She was heavily visited by a outsourcing company -persistent and the onshore representative bragged about how they were able to bribe the manager to bring in, off the boot camp H1's and make FTE's works for these contractors. It should have been the other way.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing , everything is out to public now . Oh they will come back and say "Sorry you had bad experience. Please call us blah blah.. we strive to maintain our reputation. Yes ! you are maintaining your reputation by paying fines..

    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.
