What do you do at Wells Fargo?

I’m in the Leadership Pipeline Program in Wholesale Banking. I’m doing a rotation between three different groups. The first rotation was in Funds Management. Now I’m in Wells Capital Management. For my last rotation, I’ll be in Institutional Trust Services. When I’m done, I may have the opportunity to stay with the group I did my first rotation in, or go into one of the other groups I’ve worked in, if there’s an opening.

What do you like about working at Wells Fargo?

I have the opportunity within my first year to be exposed to three different areas of the bank. I feel very privileged. No matter where I end up, I will have a plethora of connections throughout the bank, and knowledge about what I really want to do. Also, because Wells Fargo is such a large organization with many diverse business groups, there are infinite opportunities available and a niche for everyone.

What’s surprised you about working at Wells Fargo?

I’ll tell people I work at Wells Fargo, and they’ll ask, ‘What branch are you in?’ So many people think of Wells Fargo as just a bank. I had no idea how big Wells Fargo is, and how many business lines there are in the company that are unrelated to what people associate Wells Fargo with.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

I like to be active. I completed my first marathon this October, the Twin Cities Marathon. I like any sport. You name it, I wouldn’t mind playing or watching it. Also, I like to volunteer; I work with the Ronald McDonald House in Minneapolis and I recently became involved in the Red Cross.

What’s the attitude toward community service at Wells Fargo?

You can tell that they value it. You can even apply for a sabbatical in order to volunteer for an organization you’re very passionate about, and Wells Fargo will pay your salary during that time.

What sorts of community service have you done with Wells Fargo?

I acted as project manager on the Wells Fargo side for Habitat for Humanity, where we built three homes. I’ve also worked with People Serving People, which is an emergency housing facility in Minneapolis committed to ensuring a safe, sober, respectful environment for homeless families. The Wells Fargo team did everything from scrubbing floors to organizing books, and even added to their wall mural.
