Wells Fargo Corporate/Commercial Banking vs. PFM Group

Hey all,

I got an interview for a WF Corporate/Commercial banking summer analyst position. Would this be frowned open if I wanted to apply for Wells Fargo IB for FT after the summer? specifically in an industry group or maybe M&A advisory with WF? or is it going to give me a leg up?

How about PFM grou? They do public finance, munis, non-govnt financing. This company has a good network with BBs. But how well would this let me end up in a corp finn, advisory at a BB or a reputable boutique or MM bank? since the work is a little different.

Are the skill sets are pretty transferable to m&a/corp finn for either of these gigs?

I have small SMALL boutique internship exp for the past 6 months (and going). i go to a non-target with an okay gpa good extra currics and a solid network.

My goal is to get into a reputable m&a shop.

Wells Fargo is not a BB.

I am permanently behind on PMs, it's not personal.
