Consulting Exit Opportunities

Any feedback on the work culture at Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Truist? Planning to join one of these. Having an idea of work culture will help prevent any regrets later

Wells culture, as with most banks, differ from group to group. There are changes happening with the new CEO. Culture will improve, speed and urgency are shifting. Except a good amount of turnover over next year as these changes replicate through. Joined WFC about a year ago from B4.

Yup, I'm in that group of former EY FSO. My best experiences have been with folks in CIB (investment bank).

I would recommend Wells Fargo as last choice as work culture and career growth scope here is minimal.

Thanks WF2! How long have you been there? Can you elaborate on work culture and growth opportunities? Have heard similar feedback from lot of others here

I would recommend Wells as a last choice. Probably BOA over Truist - because Truist culture is going to be pretty challenging with the long-term alignment relayed to the merger.

Truist is planning to invest 100s of millions into competitive technology to compete with the top 4 banks as a result of this merger. It is an explicit strategy justifying the merger itself. Wells is a slow motion car wreck. 5 years from now, BAC will look the same as it does today. They can’t acquire, and Brian Moynihan’s conservatism doesn’t inspire any excitement.

Maybe until they executed a half billion dollar merger, the biggest since the financial crisis

Have a really close friend at Bank of America in Charlotte. Seems to love it there and the pay is decent. I would recommend going there.

Looks like Truist and BAC are clear winners from work culture and growth perspective.

How do I get taken off a matter I really hate? I’ve been on it for a year and I absolutely hate the team. The culture is toxic and the partners are horrible bullies. My work product has been suffering as a result and I worry about this affecting my reputation/reviews. This is my busiest matter and I’ve tried saying I’m busy on something else but no one is listening. What are the pros and cons of telling the assigning team or the managing partner that I need off for my mental health?
