Wells Fargo will be moving all workers from 2 uptown Charlotte towers in the upcoming months. Wells Fargo is no stranger when it comes to making headlines, and now it looks like the bank that always treats its customers like a ticket line or DMV is making yet more news.
According to a memo sent to Charlotte-area employees on Tuesday morning, Wells Fargo will be making massive changes.
Offices will be consolidated, with workers moving to the Three Wells Fargo Center and 550 S. Tryon Street, which is the former Duke Energy building.
“It’s so much easier for our teams to work together when they are together,” said Mary Mack, the bank’s CEO of consumer and small business banking, in an interview Tuesday with The Charlotte Observer. “We want to create the environment where people want to be here.”
Even though Wells Fargo is based in San Francisco, the largest hub is in Charlotte, housing about 27,000 employees.
According to sources that work for, or have worked for, Wells Fargo said, the camps prison building called the Customer Information Center (CIC) has a third floor that is secretly called “The Plantation.” The source wouldn’t go into the details, but they did say that it should be looked into why it’s called that.
We’ll have to check back to see if layoffs are short to follow…
