    Pros

    Great benefits
    Good culture
    Career oriented company

    Cons

    Poor middle management
    No incentive to stay
    Punished for networking internally

    Advice to Management

    Take a better look at the people working in middle management, people should not be punished for looking to grow their career outside of their direct group. While the company as a whole provides and great advancement opportunities and encourages internal networking and movement this is not bought into at all levels and a poor manager can lead to very negative experiences.

    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

    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"
