    Pros

    Professional environment, given all the training and utilities needed to exceed and standout. Easy to network and get foot in other aspects of the company

    Cons

    Downtown location requires paid parking. Parking at the building is pricy, if you don't mind walking a few blocks you can get paid parking at a cheaper garage

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package but everything has a catch: up to 6% 401k match but you have to work there for a year before WF contributes, 18 days of pto to start but that's for vacation and sick time, up to $5k tuition reimbursement but they prorate it differently than most other employers.

    Cons

    Pay below market so do your research and negotiate, especially if you're a woman. I saw way more men being promoted faster than women so where you start will matter. Also, the yearly pay increases are very little. They will pay you as low as they can get away with. In my case, the workload was heavy and the people I supported demanding/unappreciative. Basically, if you work in a support roll, you will be treated as "the help." The management structure I was under had many kinks to work out. I didn't see my career going anywhere despite the fact that I'm very career oriented and hard working. Also, the HR department is terrible. It's an 800 number, of course. Good luck getting any help from them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of people's career aspirations. Actually, be more supportive in general. I would go weeks without hearing from my manager (at a different office but with access to a phone and email).

    Advancement can be difficult if you don't know someone in the area you want in to

    Advice to Management

    Offer more class internally or online to help your employees advance in their careers within the bank.

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

    Pros

    Work from home policy was great. Only went into office enough to keep my desk.

    Overall the people were nice.

    Cons

    Great ideas turned to crude because EVERYONE got a say in direction rather than having experienced leaders.

    Typical big corp environment where the few do the good work and the many show up to collect a paycheck. Many of the systems are a mess and you're left keeping lipstick on the pig.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Decent product, but industry is saturated with players.

    Cons

    Cold environment without personality or solid management support. Management isn't skilled, or willing to get your back. Employees will do unethical acts to get over on you and get what is not theirs. very divisive system with little integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture, a good one. I can see why banks are known to be a virtual coal mine.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Your co-workers, most of your managers. The social aspect of the job is great and everyone is easy to talk with.

    Cons

    Upper management, site leader, corporate. The leadership of this company and of the Tempe site is horrid. WF knows they are too big to fail and they treat everyone as such, the Tempe leader is never around and you never hear from him, the only time you catch a glimpse of him is when he's talking to some female employee.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a backbone and lead that site into success and change the culture before it is too late.

    upper management is very unorganized and constantly making unnecessary changes that negatively impact the sales floor

    Pros

    Company allow you to grow and be independent on your decision per policy.

    Cons

    Different type of manager. There are those that allow you to grow but there are those that are micro-management per their believe with all companies not just Wells.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your staff to grow independently without close surprising. As we are all adult not children.
    But we do need guidance as an adult to grow from management experience.
