    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life benefits are not bad you do have the support of a giant HR department in case you have an issue like scheduling days off, health benefits, HSA, 401k support, ect. Giant company with lots of opportunities

    Cons

    Very hard to move laterally. Since Wells Fargo relies heavily on Contract to hire roles for most of it's roles it makes it hard to move laterally in the company. Here is my breakdown on why the contract to hire model is a very very poor tool for Wells Fargo. 1) Most Staffing agencies will ignore your resume or not work with you because that is considered poaching 2) Those same staffing companies will in turn hire outside talent that are generally not familiar with Wells Fargo software, policies, or have experience. 3) Existing employees are never given the opportunity to move laterally since the roles they want are being filled by staffing companies so they in turn get frustrated and quit.
