Wells Fargo

Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

There were many things I enjoyed about my summer internship, but one of the things I loved most was how I had the ability to be involved in so many different projects and that my voice, my opinions, and my research mattered. I was not sitting on the sidelines doing busy work, I was actually looking at financial reports and preparing writeups to be seen by senior managers and deal team officers.

What I wish was different

One thing I wish was different about my internship is the resources provided to learn about different lines of business in commercial banking. Being provided more time to have interaction with analysts and managers from other lines of business would have been beneficial to my overall experience.

Advice

I suggest that you take this opportunity with an open mind. Going into the first day, I was nervous - scared that I wouldn't know much of anything and that I would not adjust well to the environment. But the moment I shook my first hand that morning and was introduced to the team, I felt that I belonged. I was provided all the material I needed to succeed during my internship and each staff was there for help whenever I needed it.

Securities Operations Intern

June - August 2019 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

What I most enjoyed about my internship was the culture at Wells Fargo. The company thrives off of diversity, so it was nice seeing employee's who looked like me and many others. The work load depending on your department/division is also very manageable and balances well with your personal life. They feel that work should only stay at work and when you walk out at the end of the day or week it stays in the office.

What I wish was different

I wished I could have had more time with my team and gotten to network with other departments to see the scope of work that is offered at Wells because the opportunities are endless.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is to not be afraid to speak up. Just because you are an intern does not mean your voice is not heard either. Don't just sit there and wait for work, ask for it. The saying "close mouths don't get fed" is very true when it comes to corporate America. In order for you to grow and get the opportunity that you want you have to show it in many way than just one.

Internal Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Internal Audit at Wells Fargo welcomed me into their family and ensured that I was busy and had a really amazing learning experience.

What I wish was different

From time to time it felt like my manager was struggling to find work for me, as he was running low on tasks that he could give to an intern that didn't require more job experience.

Advice

Network, network, network. Everyone at Wells is very friendly and willing to talk to you about anything, even if your plan is to decline an offer at the end of the summer and look elsewhere. Wells Fargo really wants to help each intern they have.

Commercial Banking Intern

June - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I like that my role was shadowing the Financial Analyst position and what they would do on a day to day basis. The Financial Analyst role is what I would go into first for a full time position in the commercial bank. I also got to see all the various roles in the office and how they worked together.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have connected more with other interns in Wells Fargo. For example–if there has been one weekend all of the Commercial Banking Interns could have met up at one of the hub cities and networked.

Advice

Don't restrict yourself on location or even employer. Internships are about testing out what you want to do after you graduate and where you could see yourself living. If you don't push yourself outside of your comfort zone–you'll never know your capabilities!

Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

The internship gave me a good idea of what it would be like to work there full time. The people in my office were also very welcoming, willing to mentor, and help me learn about the bank.

What I wish was different

I wish they had more fun networking events for interns. They only bring the interns together that are a part of the analyst program which was only about 15 for the whole bay area (spanning Monterey to Sacramento).

Advice

Just use the summer as an opportunity to learn and be curious
