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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to network within and outside of your department and leverage those relationships for future projects and job opportunities that you may be interested in within the firm.

    Awesome company culture. Truly appreciates and embraces diversity and inclusion

    Cons

    Wells Fargo Advisors (WFA) -- the financial advisors can be a pain to work with sometimes and very demanding

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo was a great place for someone that wants a seat to sit in until they retire. The compensations, benefits and stability were excellent, and the culture did seem genuinely compassionate to the communities we served.

    Cons

    You become so specialized in what you are doing that things become a little mind numbing. I imagine this is the case with whatever large employer you choose to work with. There was very little excitement in the day to day tasks. Also, the stability of the workplace also lead long tenures and little opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new ways to keep employees engaged. Make sure that employees that want to advance are given the opportunity and are shown the correct steps they need to take.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tons of career move options w/ 80+ lines of business. Network w/in like crazy, look for opportunities across the org and you'll move laterally and upward (if you push for it) as you take on big responsibilities. You have to work hard for your rewards, promotions, bonuses.

    Cons

    Highly matrixed and conservative organization. Hard to get things done and move things forward; especially in tech and innovation space. Leaders don't lead w/integrity or advocate for you. Very political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teams. Understand their work, challenges, opportunities. Be their champions, not their roadblocks.

    Pros

    They are located in SF downtown... It is the only thing I can think of

    Cons

    This company is stuck in time. Very obsolete way to work, and very obsolete way to do business. They way to do marketing is 10 years behind.... You won't learn a single thing.... A lot of dinosaurs
    Full-time employees are more worried abut titles and offices than work....They treat contractors really bad...Really bad! At the time I worked there we were 3 contractors, we all left before contract ended... It is a very toxic place to work, with silly arguments, weak managers, people talking behind your back and this silly things... They have nothing better going on!

    Avoid this place! This is the Bay Area, there are thousands of better places to work around you! I actually went to interviews where they knew about how traditional and obsolete is WF so it won't even look good in your resume....

    Advice to Management

    Renew management

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

    Pros

    Not bad benefits, generous PTO, organization structure looks stable. You can easily strike a balance between work and life.

    Cons

    Everything is smooth, but slow. You need to have patience to get things done. Also, calling the tech support is like calling the God. Not good for young ambitious people.

    Advice to Management

    I wish to see more promotion for young people; more advocates for environment sustainability.

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

    Pros

    Colleagues were smart and invested in the department

    Cons

    Management was not transparent in how projects were assigned, who would be considered for promotions and the hiring process for key positions. Seemed like everyone hired for exec positions all worked at the same previous company.

    Pros

    - flexible work schedules (for appointments, etc)
    - decent amount of pto
    - can work remote 1 day per week
    - diversity is a big focus and there are some fun team member network groups

    Cons

    - no sick days, you have to use pto
    - it's really hard to move up in the corporate world when you're younger, they focus too much on years of experience
    - benefits aren't that great

    Advice to Management

    - value the younger work force that comes in with new ideas
    - change is good, don't be stuck in old ways
    - start a mentorship program
    - get a training program to develop younger talent
