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.

Enterprise Risk Intern

June - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I enjoyed how I was working on projects that I would have never learned in school.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to explore more branches in the bank.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is to always get the most out of the experience. For example, I was in the enterprise department but I made sure to reach out to lawyers who worked for Wells Fargo because I know that I wish to attend law school in the future. So networking with others is important because people want to help.

Enterprise risk development intern

July - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Wells Fargo had me working on real projects with high-level executives. I also had the opportunity to work with fellow interns on an intern project. This gave me the opportunity to network with people who had a wide range of experiences, along with people my age who were just coming out of the gate. Everyone was extremely friendly and outgoing, allowing me to gain a ton of tips and knowledge about the field I am now pursuing.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was actually in-person. It was shortened to a month due to Covid (originally it would’ve been three months at the Wells Fargo center in Charlotte), and it was set up online. While I understand it had to be virtual because of the circumstances, I still wish I had that in-person experience so that I could go grab lunch with team members or interview people face to face. It’s easier for me to talk to people when I can see them instead of speaking through a phone or through a zoom call.

Advice

My one piece of advice would be to never stop asking questions. The idea of learning should never be intimidating to you, especially when it involves your future. It gets easier and easier to talk to people when you make it clear to them that you’re invested and genuinely curious about having the questions you ask answered.

Investment Banking Analyst Intern

June - August 2020 • New York City, NY

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.

Advice

I would like to share that improving social skills is key to be successful because in investment banking you are attending the investor meetings on a regular basis and presenting pitch books. In order to give influential presentations, having a high level of social intelligence is crucial.

Bank Teller

December 2015 • Yuma, AZ

What I liked

I like the professional environment. It is different from any other typical job you have in your early years of employment. I also liked how they did the most they could to go around my school schedule. They also pay their employees well so you can afford your bills.

What I wish was different

I wish Wells Fargo would have been more flexible with their hours for school. They did great, but sometimes I had to worry whether I would miss a school day or not. They aren't at fault because they typically close at 6 or 7 so you had to make your hours somewhere.

Advice

Time management is essential to have this type job and school as well as having a limited selection of classes. For example, I could only get classes two days out of the week. If I needed more, I would have had to work and miss classes. Online classes is also another option if you do not mind.

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.

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

Be ready to learn every day. I had a lot that I needed to learn on my feet and that was a little overwhelming at first, but you get used to it and not being afraid to ask for help.

Technology intern

July - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

The inclusion of feeling like I was not just an intern but a real team member. Getting to work on a real project that will be used.

What I wish was different

Due to coronavirus I worked remote. I think working in person could have provided better communication at times.

Advice

Don't stress! Your coworkers are there to help you learn and grow.

Information Security Architect Intern

June - August 2021 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Though remote, the working environment was incredible. The team I worked on was very friendly and very willing to answer any and all questions. Aside from the work, the university program team kept all the interns engaged in learning new valuable topics.

What I wish was different

I wish I has been able to go to the office, but given the global situation it's understandable that everyone wasn't able to. Also, it seems that most of the people in the non-tech side of things had little to do. I on the other hand was a bit overwhelmed juggling work-related things and the university program curriculum.

Advice

Be prepared to learn as much as you can. Take advantage of the resources you are given and don't be afraid to reach out to other interns and make new professional connections.
