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

    Pros

    The benefits are endless and are very affordable. The company has a good rapport with customers among large banks and I find that the company does try to add incentive to retain its employees.

    Cons

    The salary issues continue to be a problem for this company. The staff internally hired and promoted rarely see a decent salary due to promotion policy, and this can cause low earning potential.

    Pros

    There is none to mention. The minute you enter this group you will have your office life in hell. Check the Cons for details.

    Cons

    BEWARE - 3-Step Refinance has bad managers

    You will loose your technical skills working for this group. Inexperienced and immature manager who will steal your work to show that she has done it to the upper management.. She will use your ideas and present it as her own and will snub you to make sure that you will not get good accolades from the upper management.

     Very bad management style. Manager here has no technical , business or plan of action., no acuteness. She is very badly organized and while trying to be a micro manager everyone she leaves every single thing hanging in limbo. Nothing she starts is completed. Very low ability to understand business issues ,even after writing down she forgets what the issue was and blames the team for her failures. Worst, she steals others work to present it to the upper management as her's.

    Advice to Management

    Get a manager who has more maturity and dedication towards the team and not hide her short comings and take advantage of the team and leave you in limbo.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many of the employees of the International group have been with Wells Fargo or a previously acquired bank for more than 25 years.
    You are treated no differently working at Wells Fargo as a contractor than as an employee..

    Cons

    Rarely are contractors hired as employees.
    This office is located in Old City Philadelphia, which make the commute & parking very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some of the contractors who are required to leave after 18 months. A lot of talent is being overlooked. A lot of time and money is spent when contractors are replaced & the new ones have to be retrained.
