    Pros

    Wells Fargo has a great culture. Majority of employees are driven and willing to help others realize their career goals when help or advice is sought. There are endless opportunities across various lines of business to advance one's career.

    Cons

    The general perception is that the bank is extremely conservative. I would not necessarily view this as a negative but that perception can impact how other banks or companies perceive your experience if you are looking to make a change later in your career. For example, if you want to move into cash flow lending, the general conservative attitude results in Wells passing on many cash flow deals which can limit this type of transaction experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment where employees can realize their goals and seize opportunities.

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

    Pros

    People & management of immediate work group, work-life balance, stock purchase plan, 6% 401k matching, learning & development opportunities, many long-term employees, flexibility, medical & dental benefits, family-friendly, very generous leave & vacation time

    Cons

    Ethics & management at high level, lower compensation/salary than other companies, no/minimal raises & bonuses for high-performing long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Upper management ruined WF reputation by acting illegally, causing culture & morale to decline and reduced bonuses for everyone. Lower level employees suffered the most.

    I worked at Wells Fargo (More than a year)

    Pros

    The bank's internship program at the University of Florida provided an excellent workplace for young professionals to develop interpersonal communication and negotiation skills.

    Cons

    Many potential clients distrust the bank's reputation due to the organization's recent issues with ethical compliance at the top management level.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to creating more effective campaigns that show the bank's shift in culture from its recent national scandals.
