    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (health care, profit sharing, etc.). Some personnel have the choice to work from home (IT personnel mainly).

    Cons

    As a salaried Full-Time Employee (FTE), you are constantly overworked with multiple number-one priorities. On-call activities, excessive project deliverables tend to demand a great deal more of your personal time, holidays and weekends. The work-life balance is not as good as it may be in other job environments.

    Advice to Management

    Don't commit your people to more projects and job duties than reasonably expected in other sectors of the IT industry.
