    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great for gaining client relations experience.

    Cons

    Even if you're hired part time, they will sometimes make you work pretty much full time though your benefits stay at part time. I was hired to work 20 hours per week, I worked 37 to 39 hours per week nearly the entire time I was there. However, I got the benefits of a minimum part time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to your employees.

    Pros

    Management solicits feedback, both negative and positive. They want to get better. They change policies if shown they don't make sense. They care about people and try hard to make it a good place to work.

    Cons

    Recent bad news has been a drag on the company and the stock.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care about employees, don't change policies for the worse because of the bad news and stock price drag.
