    Pros

    Consistent work and great benefits. It's a large company so they have a lot of things going on.

    Cons

    You get pigeon holed into one department or type of work so trying to advance in your career is nearly impossible. Especially trying to go into management you have to have experience.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for worker to advance in their careers.

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

    Pros

    Great Campus, friendly work environment, many corporate conveniences like cafe on campus, covered parking,

    Cons

    Poor Management, and the Obvious WF reputation issues causing layoffs and early contract terminations due to "Budget Cuts" (Read WF got caught again and now have to pay huge fines... therefore cutting contractor jobs...)

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together, Stop unscrupulous banking/lending practices... and make your job descriptions match the actual job.. I.E. Don't advertise a Project Manager Position and then hire for a Business Consultant position.

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

    Pros

    Good Company with a solid future. Great environment to work in. Most teams in Tech are spread out over the nation and world allowing interactions with people from all over. Most groups have embraced the mobile work force concept giving the flexibility to work from home and/or the office. The company has done well by me over the many years. Fabulous Time Off benefits.

    Cons

    Culture has changed after the Wachovia merger from a West Coast-centric style to much more of an East Coast style, particularly in the Tech Group as management is heavily represented in the East. As the current Gov't whipping-boy in the Financial Sector (and mostly deservedly so), a lot of energy is being consumed responding to those requirements rather than moving forward which is tiring but will one day come to an end.

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

    Pros

    Very positive atmosphere. Lots of opportunity for growth. Lots of great activities. They care about their community. Big parking lot. Nice gym. Nice bathrooms. Smart trainer. Nice computers. Great supervisors

    Cons

    The third party they chose to work with was awful. I had no choice but to quit, even though I really enjoyed working there. The staffing agency lied about $ and hours and told me last minute. I resigned via staffing agency, which was a terrible mistake since they refused to accept it and tried to argue with me. They even offered me a 30 cent raise. They lied to the other contractors as well. You are rehirable as long as you don't abandon your job and they didn't inform wells fargo, so I am not rehirable and I was hoping to reapply directly. Oh well. Besides this. I really loved it and think the location in Chandler and the people that work there are great.

    Advice to Management

    More help for contractors who don't get access until way after everyone else in training. Make them feel more welcome, instead of an outsider.
