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

    Pros

    Opportunity to move around and up -- although it's getting harder since the Wachovia merger and due to cost cutting. Slightly easier if you are a sought-after Millennial.
    Good benefits, and fairly generous PTO... although they've been pulling back on the latter to save money.
    Work/life balance

    Cons

    More interested in optics that the true toxic culture.
    Poor leadership/weak management mean lots of lifers who phone it in. (The other face of work/life balance.) There's a lot of mediocrity hiding in plain sight.
    Cronyism is the norm, enabling many team members to coast.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the cultural toxicity, which does NOT just thrive in branches, and do something about it. It's at HQ, and in other areas too.
    Address the cronyism that is rampant, and the weakness of middle-managers -- both are driving away the company's best talent.

    Pros

    Stable company, good location, good benefits, some really bright people.

    Cons

    Some management shouldn't be kept on just because of seniority. Also, everything has to be approved at so many levels that progress is achingly slow.

    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • Good work/life balance.
    • Important work as far as the kind of clients you worked with.
    • If you are not into corny new millennial team building ideas and are just about doing work and interacting with good people, this place was good for that.

    Cons

    • INSTABILITY with work, job status and colleagues.
    • Too many project and process work die before completion.
    • Too many ideas to change strong process seems simply to show off to upper management.
    • Management in general is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to create new process and change already stable process simply to look good to your superiors. It is ruining work for everyone around you and creates a disgruntled environment. With negative news continuing to surface with this company, the last thing you want to do is alienate your staff.

    Just the cons of being a contractor.
