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

    Pros

    Nothing positive to share. Just glad that I'm not woking there anymore.

    Cons

    There's a reason WF continues to be ensnared in one scandal after another. It all starts with very 'old school' corporate culture, lack of leadership and the inability to set clear vision and direction by senior mgmt. team as well as management's aversion to innovation and 'new ideas' are contributing to over-bureaucratic, over-regulated, overly political environment that's stifling progress and extremely counterproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Get your acts together and recognize and empower team members with talent and leadership skills to make decisions and set goals. Otherwise, WF will continue to trail behind other banks.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company culture is mostly shaped by the managers of the team. I am very fortunate and extremely lucky to be under my manager who is genuinely caring to all of his employees personally and professionally. He is very straightforward with us and all of his expectations and always so supportive in achieving our goals. His attitude transferred over to my supervisor who also adopts the transparency, honest, supportive, and caring approach. The atmosphere is friendly and very supportive amongst everyone. We are allowed some leeway but work always get done and is the highest priority.

    Cons

    Getting time approved can be tricky, but that's when communication is key. As long as the work gets done on time, then should be no problem in getting PTO approved.

    NOTHING good to say about this company

    Cons

    I don't get surprised to see the bad news about this company as I have witnessed all the negativity. My manager used to work remotely and hire some very bad employees to keep eye on his employees. I was completely harassed, discriminated and insulted all the time. There was no appreciation for my work ever.There is a lot of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    save yourself before it is too late. Don't take your position for granted
