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

    Pros

    Great workplace, great coworkers, strong support system, the company makes absolutely sure that you have the tools and knowledge necessary to do your job

    Cons

    Pointless policies, cumbersome management style, lack of sufficient incentives, upward mobility leaves more to be desired

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees based on their ability to perform in the new position, not whether or not they stay in a given position for a year. Move past the technicalities of a policy and allow management to use their own judgement rather than following everything by the book. Eliminate the clutter of repetitive training and meetings to save company time, and lastly, don't ruin the morale of tenured employees by starting new highers at a higher pay than internal promotions.
