    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team engagement, great benefits (PTO, medical, 401k. Good start to a career

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about keeping branches staffed regardless of career interests. Growth and advancement is too structured. Very hard to get out of retail banking. Can be very repetitive.
