Wells Fargo Tops First "Awesome Companies" List Of 2017 Indicating That No One Learned Anything In 2016 is looking a little hungover, you guys.

We're not saying that doesn't know what it's doing, but we are saying that this list of "11 Awesome Companies Hiring Now" published yesterday does present us with evidence that no one over there has googled "Wells Fargo" in the last six months.

While the list is diverse (not often one sees Godiva, Dell and Comcast together) and fun to read (so many EXCLAMATION POINTS!) one is forced to question its perspicacity right off the top. Putting America's most scandal-plagued and employee-torturous bank in the #1 spot of awesomeness is a bold move, one that is backed up in ballsiness by the data apparently used to justify it.

This is real:


No one is going to argue that Wells has a lot of open jobs in a lot of places (massive "cover your ass" layoffs will do that) but the notion that the Wells Fargo of today is a "great company" is a tough sell, and calling it "very customer oriented" is like calling Fidel Castro "a clean-shaven man who is still alive."

Making this sub-logical ranking of Wells Fargo even better is that Wells Fargo was undone by the vocal complaints of its own employees, who did their yelling on platforms For instance this gem from 2014:


Or this one from all the way back on the last day of 2016:


Happy New Year, Wells Fargo. And nice try.

[UPDATE] Glassdoor reached out with some clarification on their metholodogy

"Though the company faced some adversity in recent months, Wells Fargo is still an above average employer, according to employees, with a 3.4 company rating, slightly above the average company rating of 3.3 on Glassdoor, based on the more than 600,000 companies we feature on site. Wells Fargo employees talk favorably about a healthy work-life balance, good career opportunities and helpful benefits. If you're looking for a job right now, Wells Fargo is hiring for a diversity of roles including tellers, web developers and operational risk consultants, among other roles."
