A decent place to work but very difficult to be promoted
My feeling was with Wells Fargo is that if you did your job well they would not have a need to promote. It seemed to be very difficult to be promoted even if you were qualified or sometimes overqualified. It would be advantageous if they would home internal career fairs to increase internal promotions.

Typical work day
I spend my day reviewing documents for accuracy and completion. If the information is incomplete, I reach out to various parties (settlement agents, builders, real estate agents, customers and Wells Fargo Fulfillment Team) by several methods (mail, phone, email and fax) to complete.

I have been at my job close to 10 years
I start work at 8 AM and leave a 4:30 PM. I pull title loans from a list review and try to outflow if possible or correct the title problems. The hardest part of this job is correctly reading the title for vesting purposes. The most enjoyable part is accomplishing all I want to in the day.
Pros
Ok

I work back office working direct with states to service our customers from letters to assistance through the Hardest Hit Funds and other state government programs. It is a fast paced environment however no room for growth in the department I work in.

Was an awful place to work for. I literally wish I never would have went to work at wells fargo. It caused migraines and my endless hours of hard work went unnoticed.

Good opportunities with fantastic benefits
Wells Fargo is working hard to implement change and I love their efforts to listen to team members. The benefits are fantastic and hard to find anywhere else.

The most frustrating part of the job is middle management. Our Senior Leadership & CEO are working their butts off to make things better. Unfortunately that message is lost within middle management. Change cannot happen if managers are not going to walk the walk.
Pros
Benefits and Work/Life Balance
Cons
Too many managers who don't care

It was a new department brought to the Roanoke call center. The training of management and analysts was not adequate to prepare for the position.
The department started off rough as we were not trained adequately for the position. Management also struggled to assist us in our questions. We quickly had very high case log which caused stressful long hours.
Pros
Management was always on our side to assist with our case resolution.
Cons
We took the brunt for higher management not creating a more organized tra

Sales teams are stressful to interact with
The departments in vicinity are a peach to work with, the work is fine, but the sales teams that reach out from across the country are stressful to interact with.

Good benefits and PTO
Good work culture. Team is a priority. Allowed to post for new jobs after 1 year in most positions, so I moved up 3 positions within 3 years. I would like more pay for my work though.

Review
Overall rating of the company is good. Lower compensation provided due to the "temp" nature of the assignments. There are opportunities for advancement to be hired permanently by the companies contracting the work.

would not do it
Most of the managers are good but upper management cut them down quickly. My position had a volume of work that needed 12 was cut to 5. When the deadline was not met they wonder why. No overtime just constant stress to crame so much into the day and still it is never enough.
Pros
hour lunch
Cons
contractors are used instead of hiring for a position on a high volume team

Employees are overworked
Managers expect too much out of the employees so turnover of employees is extremely high and quick. Employees are treated like robots and are extremely micromanaged. Management is not organized very well and there is no proper structure/hierarchy.
Pros
hour lunch breaks
Cons
micromanaged employees

A good place to be
This is a great company to work for if you are assertive with your skills and are confident in yourself. This is not a place to expect friendships from, although it's possible. They do provide great opportunities to improve your professional skills.
Pros
Great compensation
Cons
Management can be very impersonal.
