Pros

Some great and talented people work here
Salary is good

Cons

Offices other than the BOAT [Bank of America Tower] are pretty mediocre

Everything depends on your immediate and one level up manager, if they aren't appreciate of their workers, don't expect any recognition.....at all

Advice to Management

Stop bringing in outsiders to run the company, grow talent from within, seriously, you have some really gifted people in mediocre mid management roles, seek them out!

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with. The analytical skills taught were exceptional in addition to client time. I would work there again.

    Cons

    Not enough exposure to clients

    Advice to Management

    Involve people below senior level management more exposure to clientele and have them involved in the winning business process rather than solely execution.

    Pros

    - relatively stable investment bank with true universal bank platform
    - no "cut throat" competition among bankers
    - great place to learn and get exposure
    - some senior bankers are great to work for and very supportive and it is easy to identify them

    Cons

    - poor management and lack of information sharing
    - limited deal flow, difficult for large clients to look past the traditional commercial banking platform...although the ML acquisition may change that perspective
    - disproportionate time spent on elephant hunting (marketing/pitching to big clients for big deals)

    Advice to Management

    - share information, involve bankers with decision making
    - leverage junior and mid level bankers to do more than create pitch books
    - pay at least street comp
