    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Good exposure; good training, good compenstion, i like that they really give you good training and look out for you and want you to succeed and want to you do to well

    Cons

    It is really a big, i mean super duper, big company which is perhaps not for everyone although I did really feel like part of a team there although sometimes you do indeed feel like a bit of a number or whatever

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for the right initiaitves and try to steer away from the bad ones since at the end of the day this is what matters to everyone and not just for the individual but definitely also for the company as a whole

    Pros

    Pay is good. I get to run with lost of ideas. Work / home life balance is excellent. Colleagues are very happy to help and work with you. Company is in a huge growth period so lots going on. Perfect for people who want to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.

    Cons

    Slow place and risk adverse, there are some challenges in moving things forward. Lots of socialisation needs to take place. Company talks all the time about having more challenging conversations (i.e. everyone is too nice). Because the company is growing so fast there are some growing pains regarding role boundaries.
