    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.

    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.

    Pros

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