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

    Pros

    Paying attention to employees concern and trying to help with.

    Cons

    It seems that there is a lack of sufficient vetting to hire people who are really interested in finance and would like to grow within the company. Some of the employees seem to lack the spark that drives them to their best in a genuine way.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in hiring and retaining individuals whose interest is in the business field especially Finance and make sure that the values and the long-term goals of the people you hire are in line with Wells Fargo's. On Training, I would say stress more on the value of genuine interest in people combined with sound knowledge of their role. The pay scale is also need a closer look at it. It seems too low to really motivate employees.

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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo treats its team members with respect and throughout the employment lifecycle, provides growth opportunities, coaching and mentoring. In my 15 years there I’ve had managers that care about me as an employee, care about my professional development and care about the customers, despite the recent news on sales practices, It is a fairly flat organization giving people the opportunity to show their value at all levels of management. They truly believe and show it through actions that team members are Wells Fargo’s competitive advantage. I’ve had a lot of jobs in my life and I’ve never worked with a smarter, more innovative and caring company. It may be hard to believe given how the media presents the company, but I absolutely love working for Wells Fargo.

    Cons

    Because it’s so big, and it takes so long to do things like equipment or systems upgrades, it can feel feel like we are lagging behind other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Wells Fargo has a very collaborative environment, but that isn’t always the best or most efficient way to get work done. All that collaboration takes time, and time is money....
