    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very down to earth mentality from senior management; one of the few banking environments where career longevity seems like a positive.

    Strong balance sheet and risk appetite. Excellent credit knowledge.

    Cons

    Pay is lower compared to other banks; focus is heavily on lending products and retail. Capital markets division is something that needs to be improved.

    Internal "chat" function monitors your speech so if you swear, they chastise you. Not a great thing in a banking environment...

    Can seem less intense than other banks, which may be a negative to type A personalities.

    Not great employee training, but they are working to improve this (maybe I was spoiled at my last employer)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job.

    Pros

    Decent salary and the coworkers are okay

    Cons

    The workload is so heavy for everyone that nobody gets anything done. They expect a lot with very minimal training. Factors creating an extremely stressful environment.I have been judged and bullied by a coworker on the basis of my sexual orientation, which was disgusting and unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees better.
    Stick to your values - Diversity and people as a competitive advantage.
