    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The 401k plan has been very good for me. They match 6% and have a wide variety of investment options.

    Cons

    The company is huge and therefore it is very difficult to feel valued or that your views or opinions count. The upper management (especially in the mortgage division) don't seem to understand what it's like on the front lines so some of the decisions they make don't seem to make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Do more than send us a survey once a year to see if we like working there. Have focus groups where people really listen. I would suggest that in the mortgage division you hire outside company to come in and take a look at the process flows and ask some of the front end sales and fulfillment teams what they think would help things move better.

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

    Pros

    A generous amount of paid time off can be accumulated over years of service, but often cannot be used if the employee wants to keep their head above water at the company.

    Cons

    High pressure/high stress work environment. Management not receptive to creative/productive employee input.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and apply the suggestions of your employees to improve processes and the work environment. Set consistent goals/expectations as opposed to changing them on the fly.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people/ business line I supported was amazing! My manager was amazing, but a lot of other people in L&D did not have my same experience.

    Cons

    Every other company pays way more. It was frustrating to Facilitate with people who just wanted wanted a platform to be the center of attention. Facilitating is a skill and it is hard to work with people who do not get it.

    Advice to Management

    Good Facilitating is hard. Try to keep the good ones
