    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 have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and good job security
    CTS department always seems to be growing
    Some of the brightest industry minds work here and you can really learn a lot

    Cons

    Long hours expected
    A lot of inconsistencies from group to group
    Not a lot of career development opportunities leading to a lot of turnover

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of recognizing & rewarding talent. Too many good analysts are leaving for better opportunities and the ones remaining seem to be the ones who struggle the most with their work.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people, have had fantastic colleagues, some of which will be life long friends. Can't say enough about most of my co-workers

    Cons

    Extremely limited ability to move upward, pay is well below going market rate for the area, position, and requisite skills required to preform the job correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Do things that show that you care about your employees and their plight as opposed to giving meaningless lip service.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is great. The opportunity to obtain new skills are abundant.

    Cons

    Benefits are awful and the worst I've ever worked for. No referral bonuses, high deductible health plan, only 5k per year for learning and it has to be at a university(doesn't apply for paying for certifications).

    Advice to Management

    Great management, so keep what you're doing. They actively seek what you want to do and they actively say what you need to do to reach the next level.
