    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was extremely well taken care of during my 20+ year tenure in Wells Fargo's Wholesale Banking Group. I worked with many intelligent and wise managers and senior managers and everyone fully dedicated themselves to running a group that we were proud of. I learned so much and always felt that I was an extremely valued member of the team. I was always given opportunities to reach and grow.

    Cons

    Senior Management and Human Resources needs to be more respectful to individuals during the reorganization/layoff process. It is very difficult to be a very highly rated and highly valued employee one day ... and just a "severance package recipient" the next day. The process is unceremoniously cold, and doesn't need to be that way.

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Holidays off and off by 6p during the week.

    Cons

    Very sales driven company. If you didn't make sales, you didn't mean anything to the company. You could of have an amazing interaction with customer, but if you didn't make a sale, it was just a waste of your time (according to management). Very uncomfortable. Managers are always micromanaging you to ensure you are doing sales part.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
