Mediocre IB Experience
Associate - Investment Banking & Capital Markets (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 3, 2015
Pros: stability
Cons: bankers were less talented than ones with which i worked at other banks
Placed in group in which I had no interest after being promised a different group before signing offer letter. Once I got my group assignment it was too late to look for other banking opportunities. Experience ended up being something different than I signed up for so I left.

WFS is hostile
Middle Office Rates Analyst (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJanuary 5, 2015
Hostile environment with little tolerance for training or coaching. It's really sink or swim and intelligence alone probably won't suffice. I'd recommended coming in with prior banking experience.

Competitive, yet fun place to work at.
Senior Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 25, 2014
In the ever-moving environment of financial services, there is always the element of fierce competition at Wells Fargo Securities. On the other hand, the culture at Wells Fargo does provide for some balance between work and personal life.

Very progressive management
Trading Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: majority of people here are awesome.
Cons: sometimes there are cultural conflicts.
A normal day consisted of coming in, logging on, checking emails and depending on your schedule, going down for coffee and breakfast. Once the day gets underway it became very busy. The atmosphere was busy, but there are always pockets of fun socializing during downtime.

something new to learn everyday, potential for growth unlimited
Director, Institutional Equity Sales (Former Employee), Burlington, VTApril 5, 2013
Pros: talking to investment professionals on a daily basis
Cons: competition offered superior products and services
Communicated with portfolio managers on a daily business to review past investments and introduce new ones. Continuously learning new investments ideas and strategies. Worked mostly independently prospecting for clients. Helping and servicing clients achieve their goals was the most satisfying part of daily routine. The hardest part of the job was prioritising calls and reaching clients on a timely basis.

Challenging work environment with lots to learn
Sr. Applications Architect/Tech Lead (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 16, 2012
My experience at Wells was very helpful in my growth as an individual and as a part of a team. There was plenty to learn technology wise and also, take up the responsibility of owning an application and being totally responsible for it, viz: from requirements gathering, to design and implementation.

Fast moving workplace, with great people and culture
Director (Current Employee), Charlotte, North CarolinaAugust 4, 2012
Pros: fast moving, focused on customer needs
Cons: difficult regulatory environment
Among the major banks, Wells Fargo is by far the best run. It truly cares about its people, values and culture. Wells Fargo Securities, the Investment Banking and Capital Markets arm of the bank, is mid-sized but growing fast. Customers want to do business with Wells Fargo due to its strength, stability and focus on customer needs ahead of profit.
