    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees. The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available. Highly engaged...

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time. Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company. No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

      I worked at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good people. Supportive encouraging culture. Good work/life balance. Opportunity to move across different units of the company. Very sad that a few bad apples at senior level have brought so much reputational damage.

      Cons

      Can be slow and difficult to drive decisions, get agreement and get things done. Huge size means too many people want a say in every decision, and hard to find the person who can actually green light decisions. Accountability is not clear. Massive change both internally driven and regulatory, makes it hard to get things done and hard to see all the initiatives that may influence your projects. Easy to be there a long...

      Advice to Management

      Agree key priorities for the firm. Agree key initiatives by business under these. Stay focused on them to make progress. Increase accountability and drive down decision making.

      Pros

      Supervisor and colleagues were very nice. Company didn't demand too much from employees.

      Tough working for a company that was being accused of such atrocious acts against their clients. Other than that, generally a nice work environment.
