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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    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.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and working conditions for my position are good. I've enjoyed all my direct managers, however upper management seems to reorg positions every year or so (not necessarily a bad thing).

    Cons

    Uptight and not competitive about things like dress code, working remote. Very conservative throughout including running older technology. Recent economic downturn has seen many perks go away.

    "Wonderful people, raises have been very small"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I would say that over 85% of the people in the office are great. Just like in every work environment, there are always those few. The managers are wonderful (can only think of one that I thought was terrible, they handled that though) Overall, I still like my job and those that I work with. I will say that the amount of knowledge you gain is worth it. They encourage creativity and suggestions. They do listen to feedback, well, except for raises.

    Cons

    Every year the raise get smaller and smaller. I have felt recently, no matter how much extra I have done beyond my assigned work is usually unrewarded or recognized (not referring to thank you notes, talking money). News Flash, thank you notes do not pay the mortgage. There are always headlines of wonderful profits, strong company, then comes review time....Manager tells you, "you're great" and lists all the wonderful accomplishments. Them bam 1%, 1.5%, 2%. Even though you may already be aware that the board has capped raises at 1.5% or 2% you always hope that some sorry, unproductive person an aisle over would get .5% and you would see a little more, after all, you have done so much. It's not just Wells either, it's all over. Companies are wondering how little can they feed the horse before it dies.

    Advice to Management

    The management is great, some are remarkable. My only gripe is raises. Every year I have swallowed all the sacrifices I have made, being as productive as I could, cut costs, even finding money for the bottom line, and tried streamlining any process I could. Never really amounted to much for me. I have kind of given up, gave all I could give, and will be moving on.
