    Pros

    Generous benefits, and decent work life balance depending on your team culture.

    Cons

    The place is slow and unorganized. The org is going through a lot of changes and the senior leadership team seems to have zero understanding of what it actually takes to get work done. Changes in processes and organizational structure has only made things more inefficient and costly, not less. Seems counterintuitive for a place that keeps talking about cutting costs and making things more efficient. Takes 9-12 months to launch a new marketing campaign. In 2018. Not sure how it will remain competitive in the marketplace.

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

    Pros

    I like the folks at Wells Fargo. There's a lot of great company culture there for full-time employees, and those who got in early reap great benefits for staying on, plus they help those out who are coming on to new jobs.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo has been sourcing talent via contract for years. I've seen several of my talented co-workers go because their contracts were over. This is business as usual for Wells Fargo. They let people go who've gained industry knowledge and the ability to make some great change for the department. Why? Because the middle managers are not able to keep them on.

    My advice is that if you take a contract from Wells Fargo, make sure you're looking for the next one six months before your contract ends.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Management, the company culture you bring to your employees is nice. Well, not so nice since you banned spouses from coming to holiday parties, but okay. But the culture of not allowing contractors to participate in meetings and celebrate the success of the company is shameful. You're eating your bread and butter on this golden life of having contractors work for you, and you offer them no way for them to be a part of the team. Also, folks who are full-time employees look down on contractors. The culture is askew, so fix it with your vast team of HR managers. Thanks.
