    Pros

    - Opportunity to work on a very diverse team with members across the world. - Exposure to large scale application development where multiple teams collaborate from different angles on one project - Challenging innovations and exposure to some modern trends in design - Friendly and involved management with realistic goals - An understanding of the importance of security and quality assurance helping to facilitate... creating outstanding application systems - The right amount of meetings to keep everyone apprised without stealing too much time from the actual work day.

    Cons

    - Bureaucracy creates a layer of obfuscation that can be cumbersome to navigate or understand. - Delays in the project due to how slow funding and tech support is due to the bureaucracy. - Funding problems put contractors and intellectual assets at risk due to losing people when there are shortages and gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that people are assets that can not be as 'plug and play' as the applications we create. When you lose someone with inherit knowledge of a system it can take upwards of a month for someone else to get up to the same speed once you even find the appropriate person. With that in mind funding should be secured at least a month before the end of a project with planed weaning of contractors. For the most... part Wells Fargo does everything right except in the case of not treating people like faceless drones... but that's every corporation.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Extremely relaxed pace at which to do work.

    Cons

    Kills my passion for software engineering.

    Advice to Management

    When someone tells you they are really good at something, just let them do it. Management does not use the strengths of their employees at all.
