    Pros

    Great Benefits, larger bonuses than many, great culture.

    Once locked into a salary or position, very difficult to make large jumps, even if you're qualified. The company favors outside candidates over internal and will pay outsiders more than internal.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay, genuine people, understanding managers, Charlotte is a great location, cushy benefits (e.g., dinner paid for by Wells, lunch and dinner on weekends)

    Cons

    hours suck, not a ton of live deal experience due to speed necessary in execution, LevFin doesn't do much modeling at all

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get interns really involved in live stuff, even if it means full-timers have to stay longer or work a little more. It will make us interns more willing and excited to come back.
