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

    Pros

    Company has made great changes since sales integrity problems. Focus is less on sales and more about the customer. Company has great benefits and work/life balance is great. Pay is reasonable however the personal banker 1 position is only about $6000 more per year than a teller which doesn't seem competitive to the industry standard.

    Cons

    Management's areas of focus always changing within your role. Very challenging to move up past personal banking side into financial advising and private banking. Education not stressed enough for advancement on the retail banking side.

    Pros

    Working with smart, hard working people who want to serve their customers and their community. Job security working for a well run company that values its team members.

    Cons

    Working for a large organization can have its share of red tape, but it is necessary to make sure that all aspects of the work we do are considered from the customer perspective as well as regulatory and legal aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep an open dialogue with the team. Bring issues up before they are bubble up.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to begin or end a career in IB
    Strong reputation and a real player in capital markets
    Balance sheet gets foot in the door with leading companies
    Pay is in line with the street

    Cons

    Primarily U.S. focused and very risk averse which limits the types of transactions you'll work on
    M&A platform needs to start pulling its weight (top 10 on the U.S. league tables in every other product)
    Like other firms, politics can be a challenge and there are a handful of VP/Directors who will ruin your experience if you're placed in the wrong group

    Advice to Management

    Figure out whether you really want to be in the business and act accordingly. Not participating in half the market (international / Fin Sponsor deals) isn't a long term strategy to move up the league tables

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

    Pros

    My position as a CSR 2 with Wells Fargo was an absolute pleasure. The pay was based on performance so I received a hefty paycheck especially when the bonuses were given out. The flexibilty from the managers was a huge plus; they work with your home/work life balance to a "T".

    Cons

    No Cons at all to date!

    Advice to Management

    For those Managers who may not understand Work/Life balance it truly helps the performance and moral of the employee. The harder you make the day at work the worst your numbers may look ex: Attendance, At Work Performance!
