    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!

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of internal mobility; good benefits

    Cons

    Seems like every year a different department is going thru 'displacements' and the criteria for selecting those who go is some well HR algorithm that doesnt seem to do with performance or skills/experience

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep the quality employees during layoffs

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities to advance, great enviroment, flexible scheduling, and parental leave. A company that really care about their employees.

    Cons

    None wells is a great environment with lots to offer their employees. Some cross training between departments would ease some of the work though.

    Advice to Management

    Should be some cross training between delartments

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Historically, good benefits and good pay; however, the current status is uncertain with massive job eliminations and constant changes.

    Cons

    On-going changes within last 5 years to eliminate departments along with scandals from the former CEO and banker bad sales practices have rocked this company. Sr Management is trying to regain losses by getting rid of good/long time employees. Massive and random employee cuts are happening every week and no department is safe. Anxiety is high in all areas. Changes by Sr Management seem to benefit stakeholders at the cost of employees. One of WF core value statements is: "People are our competitive advantage" , but how can that be true, when they care more about lining the pockets of the CEO and Board of Directors? Working hard and doing your job well, doesn't safeguard you from being eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and Board of Directors: You each make millions of $$$$ annually from this company. Perhaps if you'd sacrifice just 1 year of salary (each) that would save hard working employees, restore faith, and right the ship.

    Pros

    Okay salary,, incentive program sucks. You don't get goals until the middle of the quarter

    Cons

    They have a long way to go to be a great bank.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the branches more so you can really see what goes on

    Pros

    Diversity, great work environment, great help desk/support department

    Cons

    sales goals, not enough opportunities for promotion, internal hiring only,

    Advice to Management

    in the lower valley region in Texas, should be more lenient when opening positions. They have this "rule" that they do not open positions externally, sometimes even "forcing and pushing" internal employees to apply, sometimes even opening positions twice internally so the positions can be filled within the company even though sometimes they are not the best option fir the branch.
