    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Inclusiveness, flexibility, autonomy, support, and opportunity.

    Cons

    Rigid structure, lower pay than expected, no sign of being converted from a contract to full time employment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a bit more to reflect the area people work in (I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area). Encourage division/department/floor social interactions with more team or cross-team building events.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great job availability all over the US, decent support for employees beyond the immediate job role, wide variety of jobs

    Cons

    Hard to move up, easy to be stunted by a poor manager, difficult to actually connect with all the opportunities the company has, lots of opportunities to grow require an exceptional amount of self-driven work, I don't expect anything to be just given to me, but it is nice to be supported when taking those challenges on

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your lower-level employees, we see everything going to management and realize that we'll have to go elsewhere to find that kind of support

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. The culture is very diverse and inclusive. Very supportive of bay area groups.

    Cons

    Time off is tough to have given the work commitments. Pay is not competitive to retain talent.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your people, politics and policies. Bad executive decisions should not be paid for by the workers.
