    Pros

    There are some very nice, honest and ethical people at Wells Fargo if you can find them.

    Cons

    Management speaks out of both sides of their mouths. Policies are followed when convenient by some people while other people are held to the most extreme letter of the law. Nepotism runs rampant, especially on the Wachovia side.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and take a close look at the behavior of the good old boys club in Charlotte, NC.

  3. "Company with great benefits and personal development, but too corporate."

    Pros

    Great benefits and professional development opportunities. HR genuinely interested in ensuring you have all the opportunities for growth and are rewarded and recognized for good work.

    Cons

    Environment was extremely corporate. One had to spend considerable amount of time to watching one's back. Focus on appearances much more than on results. Met many people who advanced by avoiding work and responsibility, instead of by providing results. Most employees had issues with accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on results, and not as much on corporate politics. Reward results and hold employees accountable for work done.


  4. "Wells Fargo is a big bank culture, but truly respects diversity"

    Pros

    Competitive benefits, respect for diversity, and employee centric culture. In individual situations, the human resources department will give more power to the employee rather than the manager, which is rare.

    Cons

    Typical politics are at play here. Banks are very hard to work for if you are a maverick. Just remember you have to conform to the corporate norms in certain ways, and you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job for us - your choices so far have obviously paid off for us, with the level of respect and leverage we have in the financial services community right now.
