    I worked at Merrill Lynch

    Pros

    Working for Merrill Lynch was great. I take great pride in the time I spent in Manhattan.

    Cons

    I left too soon. If you are lucky enough to get this job, stay until they shut off the lights.

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork, Comraderie, Managers willing to help you get to the next step, Lots of learning opportunities, Many directions to go into once you get a base with the firm

    Cons

    No bonus structure with my department, which kind of takes away from one trying to perform their best to receive bonues. It doesnt stop me from trying to succeed, but I would be nice to have a bonus structure.
