    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture in Digital. Positive atmosphere and leaders that seem to care and respect employees and partners. May not pay the best in the industry, esp for similar roles in tech sector but does hire and retain lots of seasoned, highly capable employees and contractors. Proud of leadership's focus on doing what's right for the customer now in all areas and looking at technology and more automation to help rebuild trust and transparency.

    Cons

    Lots of reorganizations but not uncommon for large banking institutions. Understaffed in key areas limiting ability to grow and support many businesses that depend on Digital. Lots of bureaucracy, especially in heightened risk and control environment. Salary for seasoned employees is not competitive with the marketplace....once you've been hired in, it is very hard to increase pay vs new hires.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - My immediate team is great. Some typical dysfunction, but for the most part, 5 stars for my team. - Work/life balance is excellent - laptops are closed by 5pm at the latest (only rarely are there extraordinary needs that require after hours work) - Incredibly diverse team, lots of women in leadership roles (at our level, anyway, not so much 'upstairs')

    Cons

    - Upper management is still resistant to approving full-time Work From Home, even with Covid-19 and a CEO who is remote from NY. Some folks are not being approved for FT WFH, even for jobs that have been done remotely for years now. - Conflict-avoidant culture... As reported in the press, serious problems and bad behavior still not directly addressed and allowed to go on for too long. - Old, institutionalized, dinosaur mentality (mostly 'upstairs') and fear of change. Lots of old white guys in charge, so... yeah. - Under-performers and folks who just won't do their jobs can easily hide, the org is so large. And because conflict avoidant, these problem folks are never dealt with. - Salaries are below market for design jobs. Raises don't keep up with inflation. - The process to get any little thing done is arduous and time intensive. There are so many groups and systems involved, it's redonkulous.
