    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wells Fargo treats each and every employee as an asset by encouraging employees to continuously learn and grow both individually and as a team. I have never worked for a company that focuses so intensely on supporting its' employees through coaching, mentoring, and encouraging career development.

    Cons

    The only cons involved in working for Wells Fargo involve those barriers that employees may create as a result of poor adherence to schedule, or not reaching out to ask questions when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Most always do, but make sure to say good morning to each and every one of your team members! It really makes a difference and makes being at work feel like being home!

    "Cross Sell or Unemployment, Wells Fargo Only Wants Employees To Sell Customers"

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

    Pros

    Benefits (but cost creeping up and coverage creeping down each year), Good Morale Both Management and Coworkers, and Honestly a Great Company.

    Cons

    Cross Selling is the only focus now, firing employees who are great at their job in every area that should matter but if the cross selling results are not meeting the ever ridiculous quota (which continues to rise) than you may not have a job next month. Expectation for customers to say yes to cross selling, leaving you with no real control of your job security. Stress!

    Advice to Management

    Cross sell expectations are going to destroy the customers experience after all tenured employees are fired. All that will be left are employees that cross sell and could not resolve a true complex issue.

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

    Pros

    Culture, employee engagement, employee development, benefits, trained and competent leadership.

    Cons

    Had an issue I brought up to the HR hotline and the vibe was very pro management protection and employee belittlement. I experienced this well before the companies legal fallout and came to understand after the fact that this behavior permeated the upper echelons of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management was above average to excellent in my experience. It seemed as though the branch stores had the most visible signs of poor management and practices.

    Current Employee - Vice President Senior Business Leader in Charlotte, NC

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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo is a large organization with multiple opportunities. I have been able to flourish and grow both professionally and personally. I've developed skills and been given the chance to communicate to multiple levels of leadership and influence change, while helping business partners succeed as well as the groups I have led.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo is going through a transformation and it is impacting much of the bank. I want to keep my options open and look at what is available outside the bank in case there is a better opportunity to help me continue to grow as a person and a leader.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to staff and those throughout the ranks to ensure senior leaders know what the staff has on their collective minds.
