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

    Pros

    Remote work environment
    Excellent technology
    Great atmosphere

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.
