    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People & management of immediate work group, work-life balance, stock purchase plan, 6% 401k matching, learning & development opportunities, many long-term employees, flexibility, medical & dental benefits, family-friendly, very generous leave & vacation time

    Cons

    Ethics & management at high level, lower compensation/salary than other companies, no/minimal raises & bonuses for high-performing long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Upper management ruined WF reputation by acting illegally, causing culture & morale to decline and reduced bonuses for everyone. Lower level employees suffered the most.

    Pros

    The management really cares about your development and also invests in development. In addition, the Company gives opportunities to change career paths if you find yourself unhappy.

    Cons

    Base pay and bonuses are low compared to market and annual raises barely meet inflation rates.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive raises and bonuses.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Kind people who care about the company, work from home policy, competitive (but not great) salary. I had a fantastic manager.

    Cons

    What they do to make a dollar. You really don't want them on your resume. They think they are cutting edge technology, not so much.

    Advice to Management

    Shame on you! I hear in the press how sorry you are for what you did your customers with your horrible practices. What about all the people that had pride in working for this company. You have killed morale and productivity. Was it worth it. I am planning on taking your company off my resume, who wants to have to explain why I would work for a company with no integrity. Really hope it was worth it.

    Pros

    Working with smart, hard working people who want to serve their customers and their community. Job security working for a well run company that values its team members.

    Cons

    Working for a large organization can have its share of red tape, but it is necessary to make sure that all aspects of the work we do are considered from the customer perspective as well as regulatory and legal aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep an open dialogue with the team. Bring issues up before they are bubble up.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Complete Underwriting training and focus on both credit and relationship development within the Corporate Bank.
    Team oriented environment and very focused on talent development
    Locations across the country

    Cons

    Hard job to get. Have to be a finance or accounting major or a top candidate out of college.
    Development involves a lot of practice underwriting. Might seem mundane but great for getting lots of complete talents in Finance

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate talent earlier. Get into schools across the country and recruit more heavily out of Ivies/Stanford/Michigan.
