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

    Pros

    Decent pay and could work remote.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions have caused this once respected company to decline. And who suffers? Not management, but the employees, causing low employee morale, layoffs and those who remain to take on additional workload. My manager actually hoped to hire me full-time but instead I am kicked to the curb along with many others. And on top of all that, senior management decides to kick the employees in the gut one more time and announce that they are changing their remote work policy and will now require everyone to be located near one of their 3 major city hubs. Because I don't live in one of those 3 locations, I lost my job along with many other experienced employees. Great decision management! Way to lift up your employees. Push everyone out of the office to work remote, then change your mind and tell everyone you have to come back or lose your job, or don't even give them that option and just cut them. All while senior management continues to get their fat paychecks and bonuses. Gotta recoup those massive fines somehow to calm your stockholders. Certainly won't be out of your pockets. Brilliant!

    Advice to Management

    "Re-establish" senior management & get people in there who will run the company honestly without losing focus on your most important asset, your customers. Without them you have nothing and your employees get cut or have to accept constantly increasing workload while benefits are cut.

    Pros

    Steady PM work. PMO has lots of great processes you can use for entire career. If you focus on the processes you will be fine.

    Cons

    PMO always changing. Just when you think you have gotten over the learning process the PMO or new leader Project Manager will throw you a curve ball.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing PM leaders. Roll in not out.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for full time employees such as amount of paid vacation, amenities at work facilities, and insurance offered.

    Cons

    Reaching career goals is difficult without many many years of experience. Job postings usually require that you have already done almost every function of the job to be considered.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training opportunity and invest in people that will be the future of the company. People who show potential should have the ability to move up without lengthy experience.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits for FTEs, spotty experiences amongst contractors

    Cons

    Heavy reliance on contractors creates instability, wasted effort, disorganized processes.

    Advice to Management

    Old school management styles are creating obstacles; don't turn a blind eye to what many groups and managers are already doing at Wells in their newer mindsets that promote better quality work via allowing employees autonomy, work-life-balance, and respect.

    Remote work environment
    Excellent technology

    There is an 18 month contractor limitation, then you must leave for 3-6 months before being allowed to work another contact

    Have more permanent opportunities for contractors and get rid of the 18 month limitation. I have worked here numerous times and loved the environment, but have been hindered by the 18 month rule.
