    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 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working at Wells Fargo (6+years). Benefits (new parental leave plan!) are fantastic, lots of management support in career and growth, and the company is really getting better in asking for team member feedback to make improvements.

    Cons

    Unfortunate negative news headlines following the actions of some pretty bad apples. The company really seems to be committed to fixing the internal issues, weeding out any remaining bad players, and focusing completely on customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to fix internal issues, focus on the team members that are committed to doing the right thing (for the customer!), and continue to listen to what team members share and think. Reputation issues will take time to recover from - the front line team members are the strongest asset.
