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

    Pros

    The culture here is phenomenal. The message is all about how the people make the difference and the company is very focused on developing employees.

    The routines set in place to reinforce the behaviors are phenomenal. Resources available to leaders for improving coaching style are endless! They have even taken external leadership theories and incorporated those into the resources and training available.

    Highly engaged and talented people work here, making it a great place to network and grow.

    Cons

    Some systems are a bit antiquated, but to be honest I’d prefer that over flashy stuff that glitches out all the time.

    Time off is not very competitive, and it doesn’t increase with positions that have more responsibility, it only increases with years worked at the company.

    No fully comprehensive health plan, but they do offer a company funded HSA with one of the plans.

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

    Pros

    Lovely place to work at. People are nice and friendly. People are willing to help one another. Working hours is good.

    Cons

    Maybe because of the relaxed environment, it does not feel like it can compete with the bigger banks. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    A process to allow people to move around different departments will be helpful. Overall it is a nice place to work at though.

    Pros

    Pleasant people, some good staff,

    Cons

    Large disconnect between US & Europe. Non US operation is of minor importance to WF from both a revenue and practical perspective . European footprint requires significant investment to compete with banking peers

    - better culture than at other banks - more collegial and emphasis on family and work life balance.

    - Typically long tenure in the U.S. and senior management is very approachable

    - Horizontal moves are becoming harder to do

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Market rate for salaries, can wfh

    Cons

    Awful management, really poor culture, nothing changes and nothing ever gets done. Management with no experience of what they manage
    Really poor pension and benefits

    Advice to Management

    Get managers who can actually manage staff and develop them. Managing people is not about sitting in your office with the door shut all day

    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only doing this to unlock access, never had a job so how exactly am I expected to review a company when I've never worked for one, or leave a salary when I've never had one.

    Cons

    Sorry to Wells Fargo.
