    Pros

    Reputable company that has been in business for a while

    Cons

    Applied for Sr role but work was really staff work. They do mass hiring but don't have enough work so you are idle 6m of the year. I've only done two audits within 1yr. My career has regressed.

    Pays well, decent benefits. Large cohort of experienced colleagues with minimal turnover.

    Very environmentally and socially irresponsible. Currently undergoing significant organizational changes that undermine employee security.

    There is plenty of profit to be made without lending to polluters and without engaging in predatory lending practices

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Decent work life balance,company is larger enough to offer opportunities to get experience across the company. Its easy to stay within the company for years if you want to.

    Cons

    People do well or not based on networking and participation in committees. little emphasis is placed on how well you do your actual job. skill set is often not relevant to promotions. Never admit the emperor has no clothes. Salaries and benefits are not competitive for the area, even "good" raises o not even keep up with increases in the cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    Good management is more than managing up. Let good people know they are valued in real ways, such as salaries and bonuses. grading performance on a curve is demotivating and means only the favorites get recognition.

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

    Pros

    The company is massive in scale and what it can do to potentially support its work force.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, many things move at a snails pace due to multiple persons trying to do the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to keep your staff and do better training for managers who just observe instead of manage/mentor.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great CEO. PTO is generous as you start with 20 days. You get an extra week for every 10 years of service.

    Cons

    High sales goals, lots of pressure, micromanagement environment. Compensation is right at industry average. View is that management takes care of management, and everyone else is expendable.

    The pay is not that bad and depending on your manager you can have a really good time or bad time

    Cons

    Like is said, your manager can have a big impact on how happy you are at work and there are certin people that make having a good time impossible

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the needs of your employees. It can make all the difference
