    Pros

    Employee friendly culture and policy.
    Good people to work with.
    You can retire from this company if you want
     There are people which seriously following this; especially managers.
    Fun@work.
    Wells Fargo brand value will be good for your CV.
    Ideas and efforts are getting recognized.

    Cons

    No onsite opportunity at all. They will make this expectations clear at the time of joining.
    If you dare to ask for any onsite opportunity they will convince you that Wells Fargo is not a transport company.
    Salary is good when you join this company. Half yearly increments are terrible. If you stay in this company for more that 3-4 years then world will be ahead of you in terms of salary.
    They have fix duration for offering role change. No matter whatever you do you will not get promoted to next role before that duration.
    80% support work.

    Pros

    One of the best place to work. Incourage work life balance. Company people & management work towards employee satisfaction. No micro management that means as long as you are sincere towards your work no one will question you.

    Cons

    I don't think so they have any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are really friendly, supporting and helpful. HR policies are very transparent but the growth in terms of money is a little slow. It is a conservative company and the market trends have little effect on the company's performance.

    Cons

    Learning is a little restricted. You have to be proactive in order to make the most of the abundant resources available.

    Pros

    * Salary offered on joining is attractive.
    * Gives feel good factor for 6 months to 1 year.
    * Has banged many awards, is a reputed company.
    * You will get lots of friends,you will invade your personal space/life completely.
    * Entire year can be spent having fun, minimum work.
    * Eat out, team outing, dance, drama, fun and lots of fun.
    * You will be paid to come to office and go back. NO WORK.

    Cons

    * Only politics work. People have settled down here, all they do is politics. Cast, language, group with people known at personal level (families).
    * There is hardly any technical work. You will see employees spend time in gossip, gym, play TT and other so called FUN ACTIVITIES. These people get all the awards and rewards.
    * There are local (WFIS) celebrities. Popular in WFIS on Facebook, Whatsapp, on the display screens placed all over building.
    * After a year you will be technically challenged. You will not be able to find job outside.
    * You will learn to gang up with team and destroy one persons career(team member or manager). If you dont, you will be the next target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Shake your selves and brush up your technical skills.
    * Spending money to get good feedback is not a good idea.
    * If you have lost technical skills, use common sense. That is a skill too.
    * Please do not tell bad about your managers, people loose hope in entire organization.
    * if you can not appreciate a person who is technically sound, do not discourage them. Push them to organize fun events to get better ratings.
    * Do not be insecure about your job. You have installed yourself in the organization for 5+ years, you know who to massage to go up in the ladder. You have already secured your positions.
