I hear working at banks is just as bad as big law — WLB wise. Can’t attest myself though

Try the in-house bowl although if you search in for people tab it doesn’t look like any Wells Fargo lawyers are on this app. There are some compliance people though.

I worked at Wells at the time of the merger with Wachovia. Most attys had pretty cush jobs but those that were corporate were intense. The law dept was scattered all over the country due to legacy bank acquisitions--SF, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Charlotte. This was very crazy at the time but seems quite normal 13 years later where remote collaboration is not so nutty. Most colleagues were kind and dedicated--some were dead wood.

An atty that only had negotiated letters of credit sat behind me. He had done that for _45 years_ at Wells and predecessor banks. 45 years!!!!

They have a counsel, managing counsel, senior counsel track. They are terrible about how they advertise jobs and I have no idea how people even find them.

I was in SF but worked mostly with Wachovia folks in CLT.

To add, it seems that lead counsel and assistant general counsel have the same salary range of 144k to 300k listed in the job descriptions, does that mean they are the same level?

The manager in on my engagement has a bad reputation for treating staffs badly. I found out that many staffs felt uncomfortable with the manager’s style of communication as well as always blaming on staffs instead of taking responsibility. For example, a staff sent out the sample selections and manager reviewed it but later found out that there was an error but instead of taking responsibility, the manager blamed the senior who had nothing to do with the selection process.
