    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)


    - much to do, won't be bored
    - friendly team and management
    - many group huddles so everyone is on the same page
    - lots of DIY resources on the intranet to enhance tech skills


    - very large corporation and entry level or associate level corporate workers are barely recognized beyond their name for the first year
    - severely lacking transparency from management about company decisions
    - no heads up where managers should probably share need to know items with their staff
    - no place for advancement unless you have put in 5 years
    - ambition to learn is not appreciated
    - also, there is a pending class action lawsuit for unethical business practices that is just brushed under the rug. ya...great morals there.

    Advice to Management

    - stop making the corporate feel worse than it already is with your cheap bureaucratic dialog; it gives folks false hope and makes them trust you when you don't deserve it in the slightest.
    - this isn't a car dealership; quit using sales tactics on your employees to steal their ideas and turn around and axe them when you're done with them
