Wells Fargo

Software Developer In

July - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I was doing real work in the field: working on backend developement on a web application

What I wish was different

I wish it had been in person. The fact that it was virtual made it feel more like school and less like work.

Advice

Summer Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2020 • Denver, CO

What I liked

Wells Fargo emphasized its welcoming and hardworking company culture through a variety of speakers, workshops, and virtual events for all of its interns. Despite being mainly online, Wells was able to showcase the important aspects of each position in the company and teach interns the ins and outs of financial banking.

What I wish was different

Advice

Wells Fargo has a fantastic training program to allow interns from all different majors and experiences to expand upon their knowledge of finance and banking. They have the resources to help interns figure out what they would want to do if they stay with Wells Fargo, it is a unique and helpful experience I would highly recommend.

What I liked

Wells Fargo's Strong Corporate Culture.

What I wish was different

It was almost perfect, I wouldn't think of a better internship experience.

Summer Analyst

June - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I loved learning from bright and driven individuals. Wells Fargo and my coverage group in particular (Power, Utilities, and Renewables) pushed me to further my understanding of complex financial concepts. I also gained valuable exposure to Excel modeling and PowerPoint slide decks.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have experienced the office in-person, but Wells Fargo did a great job with the virtual experience!

Advice

Like anything, you get out what you put in. If you are fortunate enough to land any internship, commit yourself to learning and developing as a young professional.

Consumer, Healthcare and Gaming Investment Banking Summer Analyst

June - August 2017 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I loved the people. I enjoyed working with my coworkers and the other summer analysts. I liked the summer program itself.

Throughout the summer they had a couple events within my team and within the intern class to get to know people around the bank.

What I wish was different

Nothing! I enjoyed the entire program and I learned a lot!

Get to know the other summer analysts! They are there for support and also to have fun! It's a great way to start to build your network of friends and coworkers.

Analyst

June - August 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

My summer experience was incredibly challenging and rewarding. I worked incredibly long hours, but I learned so much the 2.5 months I was at Wells. Everyone in my group was excited to teach me new things about the industry and the technology involved in my job. Although I did not have much of a life beyond work, I loved my summer experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a better idea of what long hours would feel like– it took a solid month before I got into the swing of balancing life chores with work. Other than that, I would not change anything. The firm and location were great.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions, reach out for help, and take chances. The best way to learn is by doing, and you must remember that growth happens when mistakes are made!

June - August 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

It was an extremely challenging and rewarding experience. I was pushed harder than any of my prior internships and allowed me to develop both my hard and soft skills.

What I wish was different

Some of the other interns in my group were difficult to work with, but it was a minor factor.

Advice

The hours are long, but they aren't as bad as they appear on paper and what you're able to learn makes it worth it.

Sales and Trading Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The people were great and the program was set up in a way that you were very hands-on for a sales and trading role. There were also many opportunities to network with people around the firm and get exposure to any group that you were interested in. As a rotational program, they also take into consideration what desks you prefer and where they think you will excel, making the process in general very smooth and allows you to stay interested in what you were doing.

What I wish was different

Nothing. Overall, a great experience.

Advice

Make sure that you are proactive in networking and building your network both before, during and after the internship.
