    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has an organized training, study program run by good people and the branch has collegial atmosphere, great support local staff, helpful branch management, solid name recognition

    Cons

    the mothership bank gets paid first. The training is no substitute for the practical, number one initial job which is account opening and then generating revenues via either transaction or advisory fees if the accounts are large enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    partnering with an established advisor may not be welcomed but it is the approach that would really work.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
