Most Helpful Positive Review

Former employee - Associate

A collaborative, positive, constructive environment.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Current employee - Associate

The culture is not inclusive. It lacks diversity in both personalities and racial makeup, Sr. bankers will exclude Associates and Analysts from client calls / meetings / internal deal conversations. Sr. bankers provide little-to-no mentorship. This is substantiated by attrition - my sub-team alone has gone through 7 Associates in 2.5 years.

Former employee - Analyst

One thing I'd change is I would have picked or requested another senior partner.

Former employee - Analyst

Important to know about working here is that if properly leveraged, the experience gained gives one the ability to transition to other financial services firms.

Former employee - Analyst

When I was there the culture was not that great. I was able to cultivate enduring relationships with some of my peers as a linear support system while there & long after my departure.

Current employee - Vice President

Very upbeat and team oriented atmosphere.

Former employee - Analyst

Anaylsts should have a wider mandate especially in product groups. Silos are too narrow.

Former employee - Analyst

Best to know that all beneficial expertise comes from coverage groups, not product groups (except some creative product groups like ABS).

Former employee - Analyst

Unfriendly environment; internally competitive within teams to the detriment of younger analysts.

Current employee - Vice President

Adjust the company by fewer executive directors; too many layers of mgmt

Current employee - Vice President

There is no culture, no real strategy. It is not a real investment bank.

Former employee - Analyst

Management has no vision and constantly try to save money and quality is last thing on their mind.

Former employee - Analyst

Too cost oriented and quality is not important.

Former employee - Associate

Liars and criminals may do well but people with integrity do not at this company.

Former employee - Vice President

They did not look out for their employees. The customer should be considered but not at the expense of employee morale

Former employee - Vice President

Culture was too cut-throat

Current employee - Associate

Wells Fargo Securities is the lender of choice above all. Leveraged Finance rules the house - don't expect to work on a ton of equity and / or M&A there. WFS has a great work-life balance relative to other investment banks and is fairly protective of their Analysts (not Associates). The people are generally nice people.

Former employee - Associate

Suggest a better advancement plan for employees

Former employee - Vice President

Management and leadership style is top down and not a collaborative and open forum environment. Large organization and office environments are very diverse across the country even within the same business groups.

Former employee - Vice President

This particular office was left disgruntled after large downsizing and negative attitudes with regard to next level of management that was not local.

Former employee - Managing Director

It is the most toxic work environment I've ever been a part of. As an employee, you are not part of a team nor are you valued in any way beyond your P/L. Your future at Wells will be dictated by people with no concern for your best interest. From every conversation or interview I have had since leaving, my 10 years at Wells Fargo is considered a very negative mark against.
