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

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees.

    The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available.

    Highly engaged and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time.

    Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company.

    No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

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

    Pros

    The work environment is good. My co-workers were real team players and we worked together like family. There was no micromanagement and the managers were great to work for.

    Cons

    Sometimes there was resistance to change from other business units even though the change would bring them into compliance with auditing requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    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!
