    Pros

    Excellent benefits, respects veterans, great people that really care about giving good advice to clients. Nice new large company cafeteria.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor

    Pros

    Great location, and others business units were very professional and great to be around.

    Cons

    Upper leadership hire managers that are from other countries/cultures to manage US born citizens and then they try manage them from another state. When I was a contractor, this manager spoke abrasive, yelled and was disrespectful towards me in front of the team and others and should not have been allowed to keep his job. He ended my contract after one month after I complained to the ethics hotline about his behavior, and WF management did nothing to him.

    Advice to Management

    If the President of the United States have to be born here to run for presidency which is the tp leadership role, don’t you think you should think about who you hire in a leadership role?

    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.

    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.
