    Pros

    Great place to learn and the team invests in your learning/development

    Public perception of the organization is not high in public/media

    Complete Underwriting training and focus on both credit and relationship development within the Corporate Bank.
    Team oriented environment and very focused on talent development
    Locations across the country

    Cultivate talent earlier. Get into schools across the country and recruit more heavily out of Ivies/Stanford/Michigan.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A generous amount of paid time off can be accumulated over years of service, but often cannot be used if the employee wants to keep their head above water at the company.

    Cons

    High pressure/high stress work environment. Management not receptive to creative/productive employee input.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and apply the suggestions of your employees to improve processes and the work environment. Set consistent goals/expectations as opposed to changing them on the fly.
