Wells Fargo Maternity Leave Comments
  • "I worked here for 9 years and wish I hadn't stressed so much about my maternity leave. My team was fully supportive through this tough personal period, and I was still respected for my work ethic and performance. My advice to other women is to pay attention to building better relationships with the senior management (which is predominantly older and male). Its hard for younger women to do this but watch carefully how some of the more senior women do it because its very important for your career advancement." - me Girl
  • "Wells Fargo firmly stands by its values of diversity and inclusion. This applies to sex, race, religion, as well as other things. They encourage having many different ideas and lifestyles in a team, for the company feels that this helps generate creativity and stop stagnation. Wells Fargo supports women in maternity leave, protected breast feeding/pumping time, and discounts/insurance plans to help with childcare. In my year here, I've met many women in leadership roles, and they are all there due to their own personal merit. I've received coaching and support about my own growth, and have had tremendous opportunity to advance in the company. This is a wonderful place for anyone, both women and men, to work." - Lady Murr
  • "I've worked here for 16 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time. When we do take time off for maternity, there is pressure to return to work which dampens the experience. Employees can get up to 25 weeks of full pay based on tenure but job protection is only 12 weeks." - Madam seniorleader
  • "Never took maternity leave, but knew quite a few co workers who did. Management constantly called them to see when they were coming back. Other women supervisors were very negative whenever a manager would announce pregnancy. No work to life balance with this company, all work all the time!" - Lady Barbs1701
  • "I've worked here for 2 years and there are alot of women working here. Many are in higher level roles, most of which require a decent amount of travel. I've heard the maternity is the absolute bare minimum and flexible schedules aren't really supported or embraced." - Lady littlebandit
  • "This company makes strides to promote and include women. However, within teams, I belive women are treated less fairly related to pay and bonuses, along with promotion. While we do have some women "at the top" the women in the middle seem to struggle to make it up the chain more than men. From what I understand, the maternity policy is just use of vacation time and short term disability." - Lady Attorney
  • "It all depends on the organization for which you work. If you work as a Financial Advisor, it's a man's world (and a world of baby boomer generation). And it also is branch dependent. If you luck out and work at a good branch (good team, manager, location), it may be OK. Wells parental leaves, etc. are subpar. Even the health benefits are very strict and inflexible. Not the best company in terms of benefits, leave, flexibility, family, etc." - avitubbel25
