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

    Pros

    Free food some times to eat

    Cons

    I don't get surprised by the news because i have see how they work. This company h as some very dishonest managers working who abuse their contractors for very little pay. They make them work days and nights and refuse to pay over time. They harass them and treat them like their personnel servants. Too much racism , favoritism and discrimination exists. I was harassed by one employee but management didn't take any serious action.

    Advice to Management

    Fix yourselves before it is too late.

    Pros

    Great benefits, job security, many different locations, great technology/ systems, peer to peer support is great, long standing reputation/ brand recognition.

    Cons

    Upper management disconnected with lower level team members, career development is a focus but not realistic in the way you are required to go about it, pay is not very competitive for some positions, expectations for anything are to the highest degree which is unrealistic at times.

    Pros

    Great 401(k). Best of the Big Banks by far. Benefits are great in general.
    If you work hard it will be seen, and there will be potential to move up.
    Want to promote from within. Core values of the company are strong.

    Work Life Balance can be hard if you are trying to accelerate your career. Long hours at times, but they encourage time off.
