    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Opportunities for promotion.

    Cons

    You must be flexible and keep and open mind when dealing with ethical issues at Wells Fargo. It's acceptable to misrepresents facts within this culture, and you are expected to do so if it means that your department may be negatively affected by the truth. It is a blame, blame, blame culture. More importance is given to finding a person to blame for mistakes instead of 1) acknowledging that human beings make mistakes, 2) fixing the problem, and 3) implementing changes that improve the overall process. Problems get covered here, not fixed. Departments do not work well together.
