    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people work there from security to the cafeteria. Benefits are decent. Retirement is possible if you work on it. Secured Building. Career Development. Community & Culture Connections. Networking is huge plus. Lateral movement is encouraged.

    Cons

    Negative Publicity. No department can stand alone so all suffer production at the same time at times. Constant change on how to run a department year in to year out. The number of loyal workers being displaced. Company policy prohibits active employees to give a quality reference for future employment.

    Advice to Management

    Talk is talk & sounding the same as the next is not management skills. Action on your part is necessary to prove culture of caring exist in a team's environment. Management must lead by example for your team & should be a company standard. Some good will come from your team. If you don't like to participate, then you're not management material.
