    Keep the focus on rebuilding trust with customers, and I'm sure the ship will correct itself just fine

    Pros

    WF is a very large bank with lots of different products, and many different career opportunities. There are many very smart and motivated employees who really do try to serve the customer. It is great to work with such a great team of people.

    Cons

    WF is very big, so sometimes it is difficult to find the right person or department to solve a problem.

    Keep up your focus on the customers and the team members. If both are treated well, the business will continue to be successful.

    Many positions in the current area. The systems and computers used are very easy to work. The benefits are decent.
