    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.
