    Q4, 2016 account opening practices resulted in government and media scrutiny; causing the company to move to cost-saving mode in the midst of a re-engineering effort.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable work, lots of company paid lunches and treats.

    Cons

    They will not admit it but it was obvious I was laid off because I had health issues... Wells is well known for hiring and laying people off. I knew better when I took the job. My mistake to quit a good job for this...

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

    Pros

    Good tuition reimbursement program if you take advantage of.

    Cons

    Very unethical sales processes. Bank Managers are most interested in having people open accounts even when they don't need them - or oftentimes, don't qualify for them.

    Advice to Management

    Ethics starts from the top. And even though you fired the CEO - I know, I know, he technically "stepped down..." - there is a lot more people in the upper management that need to have their previous years' bonuses revoked and let go.

    Pros

    Profit Sharing, location, teammates are good to work with.

    Cons

    Management has too much control of raises, bonuses, etc. If you take of leave of absence for maternity, or most anything else, you will probably be laid off, after returning. Employees are not treated fairly, unless you have high production.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as you would like to be treated if you had their job.
