I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You are surrounded by smart people, good managers, within a diverse, tolerant culture

Cons

The bureaucracy of a big bank never ends. There are constant compliance requirements and cross-selling "suggestions" so as to integrate the ML folks into the bank culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let Merrill Lynch employees have more autonomy. Stop shoving cross-selling down everyone's throats.
