Pros

The people are great. The company is strong and stable. There are many job types and opportunities within the company. It's a great place to get experience.

Cons

There is an internal policy that limits growth of the employees to about 15% for internal promotions. This isn't an issue if you join the company at a reasonable market rate, but if you are planning on starting at the bottom and trying to work your way up, you will quickly find that you will always be at the bottom. The consensus from employees I have spoken with is that the best way to earn a respectable salary is to leave the company and come back at a decent rate. I know two individuals who did this and doubled their salary in one year, keeping in mind that they were severely underpaid to begin with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to build a better culture of talent retention. Too many great employees leave because of the rigid compensation policy. Just because you get a bargain rate on an employee to begin with doesn't mean that you should hold them at the bottom for the rest of their career. The smart employees will always leave for better pay, and you will be left with the least ambitious, least talented people working for you for the long term. This does not seem to be a very good recipe for success.

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brank was located in a small rural community. Management was always willing to work with me when time off was needed for family sickness etc... Large company opportunity for advancement or relocating was always available. Only left because family business was in need of personnel.

    Cons

    Holiday work schedules are not great such as the day after Thanksgiving.
