    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A company you’re able to start a career with. Many divisions to jump between as you explore.

    Company is made of many other companies that have been absorbed in the financial services industry over the last 20 years. Some of the people you work alongside have very long histories there!

    Cons

    Regulatory environment the company operates can create a significant amount of additional work for your team at a moments notice.

    Long timelines for initiatives, due to many vertical and lateral layers to the organization.
