    Pros

    Good management, friendly co-workers, VTO and PTO plus personal holidays on top of holidays. Tons of team work. I can go on. I know tons of people has a strong dislike for Wells Fargo but I did not have a bad experience at all. There were times when the pressure was applied fiercely - it was never for long.

    Cons

    Bad Public Reputation. It got hard to work for Wells Fargo when they kept making the news for scandals and violating rights. It’s hard to work for a company you have to defend constantly.
