    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good benefits and pay. There was transparency with your salary and bonus which I appreciated. However, there was some favoritism.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy made it hard to get things done or be creative. The inconsistent application of hiring and promotion practices, lack of diversity among leadership, and clique-ish behavior was discouraging. People were often afraid to speak up or speak truth to power.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people more accountable. Recognize those that show courage and original thought.

    Great benefits, decent compensation, much autonomy at mid-level.

    Necessary, but sometimes painful, bureaucracy particularly since the community bank sales practices debacle.

    Invest in your leaders (smart hiring, ongoing training, more oversight) who ultimately influence the success of a large workforce.

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

    Pros

    Diversity & inclusion are truly core values of the company. They have been open about the sales practice scandal, pointing the responsibility squarely on where it needs to be (former CEO and head of Community Banking) and are taking steps to rebuild trust.

    Cons

    The benefits are more expensive then former employer (who acquired us). The sales practice scandal was a blow to morale but strides are being taken to rebuild trust. Because of that, more and more is become centralized so it's hard to do anything different at a local level.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let "Core and Common" override what could be done at the local level. Centralization is good but it's not the answer to everything.

    Pros

    Large organization, many opportunities, multiple locations

    Cons

    it seems like the HR organization from the very top down hires friends into jobs they may not be qualified for or the best vetted person for the role

    Advice to Management

    Truly vet and interview outside of your personal circle.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great experience working at Wells Fargo. Everyone I met was super nice, down-to-earth, and helpful. Senior managers are very approachable and always willing to meet up to share their experiences since the company culture really places a lot of value on investing in their people and working as a team.
    My managers and mentor are EXTREMELY supportive in my personal learning and development. I had so many opportunities to get hands-on experiences with ongoing projects that makes an impact and truly felt like a valued member on the team.

    Cons

    There are some slow days occasionally but there aren't really any major cons other than that.
