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

    Pros

    Wonderful team atmosphere, unlimited opportunities on current team or new team, challenging, management is great and nurtures talent, mentor opps are good, barriers between team and partner teams are nonexistent

    Cons

    No flexibility, weak benefits for new employees, unable to work from home, executive leaders work at painstakingly slow speeds to sign off on advancements, at the time of publishing this review: it’s hard to respect this company as an employee due to settlements, cell phone service is next to none

    Advice to Management

    Act quicker, become more flexible, develop other ways to reward employees since you cannot change the PTO/benefits package

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, helping people with severe issues, you learn everything there is about mortgages and what can go wrong. Very rewarding assisting people.

    Cons

    You are dealing with people during their hardest times. The job is emotionally draining, lots of mandatory overtime, no control over schedule. Literally people screaming/crying at you for 8-10hrs a day. Eventually even the hardest-skinned people within the department having issues.

    Advice to Management

    The pay is an absolute joke when you consider the amount of risk being mitigated. Millions and millions of dollars saved in lawsuits, penalties, fees, etc. Nothing is done to keep morale up. Rules, laws, and plans change on a whim.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. There was plenty of work that needed to be done and you were constantly busy.

    Cons

    Treated like a number. Does not put up with any tardiness. Not a family oriented work place in my opinion..

    Advice to Management

    My manager was amazing. There was one other manager specifically who was not very nice at all she was actually very rude and unwelcoming to everyone.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, retirement match is good. Sometimes being lost in a large company is good but WF is just too large.

    Cons

    Poor management, HR USELESS, corporate America. Good company but middle management stinks. It's too big. Advancement is tough, processes and procedures are micromanaged and don't even make sense across the board. Overall, company is just too big.

    Advice to Management

    Better training

    Pros

    Great coworkers and staff, everyone is super friendly and assist in anyway. fridays are casual and work is super easy.

    Cons

    they dangle the carrot a lot, empty promises and expected to do more work that what the job entailed. no pay increases at end of year like stated when you start, you have to ask your manager who asks their manager (if they think you deserve it) and most likely HR will say no because it "is out of the standard annual review period" DO NOT EXPECT ANY PAY INCREASE. March is when they review for that and its a bonus of no more than 8% of yearly income and a raise of 2-4% MAX

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth, i know its a major corporation and you squeeze employees for all you can until they decide to post out. majority of wells fargo jobs can easily be filled (teller, customer service bases, etc.) and replaceable so they show no loyalty to you. If the company needs to downsize believe you are done. DO NOT BE LOYAL TO A COMPANY, THEY WILL NEVER BE LOYAL TO YOU. do what you need to do to increase you overall career salary and make you happy. Management will assist you but pay, benefits and bonus are out of their hands, HR has their minds made up before you manager sees it.
