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

    Pros

    Great camaraderie amongst the team. We were all there working on a project unfamiliar to us. Technical skill varied. We met weekly to figure out the kinks

    Cons

    As a contractor, some of the permanent end-users blamed you for their mistakes. Eventually, management took their side.
    VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Wells Fargo did not care about how they ended your contract. In front of all the other contractors, in the middle of the day, they would tell you your contract has ended. They used that as an intimidation tactic to get you to push yourself beyond measure. They also had meeting uttering another contractors' progress and periodically used in a joking matter, if we don't make it to this point "Heads would roll". It started when the Wells Fargo Management realized the way they were running the project was costly and inefficient. They applied tremendous pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your team when they are there doing exemplary work.

    Pros

    Location of my office is wonderful!

    Cons

    VOLUME. The volume of work is completely unmanageable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people at the bottom of the totum pole as that is where all the work apparently is. Furthermore, do not call two hour meeting to stand in front of the entire office trying to justify why more people will not be hired based on inaccurate, computerized reports.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Easy to move up the ladder / get promoted
    Great pay for interns - far higher than anywhere else

    Cons

    Upper management too old fashioned
    Management is usually long distance
    Philly office has no space so new hires are stuck without desk/cubicle

    Treat interns better

    Pros

    No sales goals.... for now. PTO/Vacation time and paid holidays off. They recently added a few more paid holidays to pur 2018 calender, which is awesome. That's about it.

    Cons

    Good luck trying to advance and move up if you're not, for lack of a better term, an a** kisser. Management acts as if they care about your advancement, but in turn will literally give positions to "favorite " employees... when sales goals left, quality work went with it. If you aren't best friends with your manager, you'll be stuck in your position . Recruiters reach out to managers about employees who are looking to post out, so if your manager doesnt want to let you go.... you wont go anywhere. So while you think you're moving in the right direction, someone is always there to knock you back down. The pay could be better. Saturday hours.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all employees are treated fairly. Favoritism is loud and clear within this company. Hire management that can build, uplift and advance their team members. It's not fair to be held back in a position because your manager "can't afford.to lose you at the branch"
