    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employment, which is a good thing in the current economy.

    The company name looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    High stress due to tyrannical micro-managers, roadblocks, red-tape, politics, finger-pointing, and CONSTANT fire drills.

    Long hours, unplanned weekend and holiday work (which is unpaid) getting dropped on us frequently on Friday afternoons.

    No opportunity to transition out of narrowly defined job roles. You are basically stuck in what is called a "silo" until that technology or job is retired, at which point you are put into what is called "star" status (which is internal lingo meaning "laid off").

    Numerous internal processes and formalities that are often in conflict with one another.

    Employee turnover, which in my group is increasing. We've lost 4 good engineers in the past 6 months, and others in my group are looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is totally disconnected. If you really want to know what is going on, talk directly to the engineers. NOT to the engineer's manager's manager's manager.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
