    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management listens. Good pay. Reasonable benefits. Casual dress makes for more relaxed atmosphere. Team environment centered around the corporate client.

    Cons

    The work flows around the calendar. Almost nothing to do from the 26th of the month to the 10th of the next month. Then it all goes downhill and the 12-14-16-20 hour days kick in. Great if you like overtime and ulcers!

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to staff up for the 18th-25th stretch of the month. You are killing people.

    Pros

    Good benefits, laid back culture, you can pick your own hours anywhere between 7am-6pm, ability to progress your career.

    It's still a very large and traditional bank, so things can move slowly. Raises are not as competitive with promotions.

    Pros

    Overall good company and benefits, they train employees for extensively. Promotional opportunities or slim. Many locations across the US makes it a little easier to transfer if you've been your position a year.

    Cons

    Under paid. It almost benefits to be and external hire rather that be promoted within the company as the will offer you to lowest pay rate. Favoritism is very real with the "who you know " rather than the "what you know"

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good benefits and fair compensation. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Drive to improve volume, quality, and accuracy all at the same time. It might be better to choose one as priority for improvement with a commitment to maintain in other areas. Fast market growth made it difficult to keep up with volume and manage risk well.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a priority rather than more AND better AND faster all at the same time.
