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

    Pros

    You will work alongside some of the most intelligent people you will ever encounter. Work life balance is generally good compared to other financial institutions as is compensation.

    Cons

    There is a complete disregard for current risk management practices. When you walk in the door be prepared to work with a management structure that does not believe in the concept of controls or proactively monitoring risky behavior as most management has been in the same company for 10+ years so they know no better. Any kind of change either positive or negative is glacial, simple changes can take 6 months to a year to even begin implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that change has to come from the top down and often requires difficult conversations to be had.

    Encourage bankers to hustle for assets and business like before. Don't be complacent with clients because you are scars of bad press.

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

    Pros

    Good benefit package, flexible work hours, and good pay.

    Cons

    Management and team leads are horrible and will go no further than Wells Fargo because the crap they pull will not be acceptable at any other bank/company. Also, the managers & team leads, do look out for each other, so if another manager and/or team leader does not care for you, they will go out of their way to make sure you lose your job. Working for this company is very cut throat, so go to work only to do your job and go home. Lastly, make sure you have a "plan B" because Wells Fargo is the kingdom of lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your team/employees. Stop placing people in management & team lead positions just because, and start putting people in those positions that know the true meaning of being a manager and/or team leader. There are some good people in management and/or team lead positions but there are some who abuse their positions.
