Great place to work (used to be anyway)

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

ProsGreat place to work when it was Wachovia. Not sure now that it's been bought by Wells Fargo. Laid back environment for an Investment Bank. If you're in the investment banking section, you still get comparable compensation as other Wall Street firms, working in a city (Charlotte) with low cost of living. A lot of new business to get involved when I was there back in 2005 to 2008.

ConsMade serious mistakes in mortgage business but you all know that. Maybe it was too eager to imitate other Wall Street firms instead of sticking to its strength.

Advice to Senior ManagementHope Wells Fargo will keep the culture from Wachovia.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
