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

    Pros

    Lots of PTO and flexibility to use that PTO, one of the hardest things it would be to walk away from. Start with 20 days PTO and jumps to 25 after 3 years plus additional 10 paid holidays plus 2 volunteer days and additional paid days off for bereavement and other occasions/events. Very large leeway for poor performance or attendance, which can be a negative if you are one of the people who are strong performers with great attendance. Piggybacking off of that it is hard to be let go, they give you lots of time in advance if they are doing layoffs but other than that you have to be a pretty bad employee to be let go so there is great job security.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company unless spots open up in your specific area/department and you are on the good side or favorites of the managers. Low pay when compared to same positions outside of the company. Expect to earn at least 20% less than what other similar positions pay at other companies. Most offices don't feel like a professional office, more like filled with the castoffs other companies don't want.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting jobs on the career board if you already have the position earmarked for someone already. I have seen 10+ jobs be posted but we all knew 1 person was going to get it and even received training for that position and not shockingly they all were offered the position. Despite hundreds of job postings you know that only a very select few are truly interested in bringing on an outsider.
