Pros

Wells Fargo is sytematically and thoughtfully moving up the league tables in investment banking, capital markets, and sales and trading. Because of this, the company is hiring while the rest of the street is downsizing. This provides opportunities to quickly move up and gain responsibilities faster than at other firms.

Cons

The company may seem a little slow to adopt the latest technology. Additionally, the company is risk adverse (which is good for stability of the firm but bad for short term profit). This can be aggravating as the corporate bank may not use its balance sheet as much as it could, the investment bank may not seek out some high profile deals, and the traders can't take as much risk.

Advice to Management

Focus on marketing why the company is a great place for talent to go to due to the company's growth prospects. It's easier to rise up the ranks in a growing company than a shrinking one.

    Pros

    Benefits (health, dental vision, 401k with matching, PTO, other discounts and benefits)
    Nice environment for students and young professionals to get experience or make a career.
    Professional and straight forward expectations.

    Cons

    Very very very competitive for sales. Sales hungry.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work and great people on the team, but do not negatively pressure your branch to meet their numbers for the sake of providing real genuine service. Instead of just throwing out incentives left and right for hitting numbers, also promote more commitment for bankers to improve their knowledge and understanding of the field and business model so that they stay engaged in the bigger success of the company and not just out for a quick dollar.
