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

    Pros

    Wells Fargo treats each and every employee as an asset by encouraging employees to continuously learn and grow both individually and as a team. I have never worked for a company that focuses so intensely on supporting its' employees through coaching, mentoring, and encouraging career development.

    Cons

    The only cons involved in working for Wells Fargo involve those barriers that employees may create as a result of poor adherence to schedule, or not reaching out to ask questions when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Most always do, but make sure to say good morning to each and every one of your team members! It really makes a difference and makes being at work feel like being home!

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People & management of immediate work group, work-life balance, stock purchase plan, 6% 401k matching, learning & development opportunities, many long-term employees, flexibility, medical & dental benefits, family-friendly, very generous leave & vacation time

    Cons

    Ethics & management at high level, lower compensation/salary than other companies, no/minimal raises & bonuses for high-performing long term employees

    Advice to Management

    Upper management ruined WF reputation by acting illegally, causing culture & morale to decline and reduced bonuses for everyone. Lower level employees suffered the most.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Despite recent scandals, it is surprisingly a good company. If you are interested in Denver job market - it is one of the best. It is a large company, so different departments would deliver different levels of employee satisfaction. Management is generally caring and listens to the employees. Lots of opportunity for growth and development. Many people work for WF for years. Those are brilliant, smart and friendly people. You can make good friends here and develop productive relationships. Laid-back environment even despite many hourly positions. Good work and life balance. It is a good choice to start your career and learn.

    Cons

    There are serious, however. Pay is the biggest one. Like in all other banks, the pay is low and it may take time to get an adequate raise. Health benefits aren't very good either. There three choices of health benefits, but they are all expensive. Every once in a while you will get to communicate with people who are a wonderful mix of stupidity and laziness. No, these people cannot be fixed and they don't learn. Fortunately, there are only a handful of these people and you don't hear from them every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up doing what you're doing. Pay should be better though.
