Layoffs to the US workforce will continue until the December freeze goes into effect. Until then, More cuts will hit mortgage, CB, Auto, branches, corp risk, technology, and others in remote rolls and non-hub locations. They will also be hitting hub locations for individuals that are not compliant on the RTO policIES. The justification is to offshore for the cheap labor! This is the only way that C S knows how to cut costs. Pretty pathetic.
Now for the my rant of truth: if it’s TLDR, then don’t bother, I am only speaking the truth.
The current CEO is failing miserably. Meanwhile the Board of Directors continues to drive a false narrative that he is making progress and being a successful CEO while at the same time The company experiences, faulty systems, Multi billion dollar fines, and serious impacts to our customers due to all of these glitches that pop up on a monthly basis. it just goes to show how much the CEO actually understands repetitional risk.
The truth is the bank continues to be a habitual offender and meeting its regulatory obligations. CEO continues to cost the bank billions of dollars in fines and additional regulatory action. he is an overpaid CEO that cannot show any milestones or successes, or even how far along he is in whatever strategy he pitched to the board upon hiring him.
The Sharty CEO cannot maintain the stock price. in fact, it consistently is getting lower than when the bank came under extreme scrutiny and was outed for the false account scandal. Can someone tell me why this CEO continues to receive multi million dollar raises, unlimited access to the company jet for personal vacations, And insulate himself with his most recent hires of all his deadweight cronies.
The only way to turn this bank around is to find a CEO that actually understands both banking and technology. If Wells Fargo CEO was truly looking for this to be the year of efficiencies, he invest in the current employees, along with allowing everyone to use an AI assistant, such as Microsoft copilot. You would think that since he’s on the board of Microsoft, he would actually understand this. Unfortunately, he is a dinosaur and defaults to his 1980s playbook of offshore US domestic talent to hire three qualified offshore individuals. Any id--t could come up with this strategy.
If you really wanted to invest in our risk and controls he would be looking at technologies that not only automate these controls, but also allow the bank to be proactive in their risking control environment.
This will never happen under a dinosaur CEO. Let’s look at an example real quick. I’m no fan of musk, but if you look at Tesla and his other companies, there is a reason why he has become the richest man in the world coinciding with profitable companies. I understand his companies have had their ups and downs, but so has Wells Fargo.
The point I am trying to make is, without a younger CEO, Wells Fargo will never make any significant changes better their efficiencies. The CEOs, lack innovation, long-term strategies, and knowledge in what technology can do to assist workers do their jobs and be much more efficient. There is a reason why musk is the richest man in the world in such a short amount of time. I just named a few of those reasons.
It’s time to get rid of the senile dinosaurs and bring in some young, knowledgeable, and motivated employees
The only thing that our dinosaur CEO can say, is that he cut headcount by offshore US jobs and reduced costs by paying cheap labor. This reminds me of the barons back in the day who were building the railroad. They made sure to capitalize on cheap labor, regardless of equality or ethics.
If you look at their earnings, call, you can see that they’re big topic. Was they cut headcount which resulted in reduce expenditures. I’m glad they can pat themselves on the back.
If you look at the CEOs history, he has left every company with a bad taste in its mouth. Just ask the BNY melon folks about how he tried to implement a return to office policy. They gave so much pushback that he could not get it through and moved on.
This guy is deadweight! If the board is too senile to notice this, then they are deadweight too. It’s only a matter of time before this fragile house of cards comes crashing down. This is why the CEO has recently insulated himself with his cronies and has a golden parachute waiting when the time comes. Just take a peek at his offer letter on the SEC website. It is public information and you would probably be shocked. And for those who say that he is compensated based on compensation at similar banks. Well guess what, Wells Fargo is nothing like other banks! Can anyone name a bank that has been restricted to grow due to regulatory orders? The answer is no. Are there any other banks that have Paid as much and fines as Wells Fargo? The answer is no. This makes Wells Fargo nothing like any other of the banks. Don’t even try and compare it. I have still yet to see a milestone, or how far along our CEO is along on this smok and mirror journey.
The baby boomers are greediest generation, and history will judge them for that. They are nothing but ego maniacs, who refuse to step aside, and let young talent turn the bank around.
Offshore US jobs is not the answer. Capitalizing on both banking knowledge and utilizing technology will create efficiencies right out of the gate, and mitigates significant amounts of risk posed by offshore American jobs. These chumps should be ashamed of themselves.
If this was any other employee performing in this was they would have been fired years ago. It sure gonna be funny to watch when instability erupts in the regions are dinosaurs CEO decided to offshore American jobs to.
Biggest proof that our CEO is completely completely out of touch is the fact that he just spent a half billion dollars on space at HY. What kind of mo--n buys commercial real estate right before the bubbles going to burst? This was a terrible investment and could’ve been purchased at half the cost come 2024. he just needs a place for all his recent NYC hires that he has insulated himself with.
All of this is public knowledge and public information. If this is too long to read my bad. At least I’m providing the inconvenient truth. What a terrible CEO Who? is too old to even come up with a long-term strategy, and make sure that he can capitalize on his short term plan a.k.a. when is five years is up. Take a peek at his offer letter and you’ll understand what I mean.
