    I worked at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very down to earth mentality from senior management; one of the few banking environments where career longevity seems like a positive.

    Strong balance sheet and risk appetite. Excellent credit knowledge.

    Cons

    Pay is lower compared to other banks; focus is heavily on lending products and retail. Capital markets division is something that needs to be improved.

    Internal "chat" function monitors your speech so if you swear, they chastise you. Not a great thing in a banking environment...

    Can seem less intense than other banks, which may be a negative to type A personalities.

    Not great employee training, but they are working to improve this (maybe I was spoiled at my last employer)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Wells Fargo (Toronto, ON) in November-2016.

    Interview

    On campus recruiting. Standard 30 min phone call, asked behavioural and technical questions. Interviewer was very nice but also in a rush to finish first rounds. Make sure you know what separates Wells Fargo from the other bulge brackets. Interviewer was pressing me hard on why not other banks, and if i was interviewing with other firms. Show your conviction in the firm and it should be fine
