Pros

Merrill has lots of employees that have been around for a long time, and another group that have been around not long at all and turn over. These are the folks that want to grow and advance and get paid at least the Market rate for salary. The culture is more family-like than most and that probably keeps the long-timers around. Positions are pretty stable and predictable.

Cons

Not much room for careen advancement due the to limited size of the company. Often to move up in the company you're waiting for people to leave the company to create an opening. Overall, pay is under the market average. Hearing from co-workers still there, benefits have been cut in 2009 and pay frozen, 401k match is gone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to retain talent, get pay up to market rates.

    So much talent wasted and so much credit given to the undeserving.

    I have been working at Merrill Corporation

    Pros

    My paycheck doesn't bounce. Intelligent coworkers who share the same sentiments and are just waiting for solid leadership with vision to take the helm.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to advance within your area of expertise. Workforce is rife with incompetency at important levels which cause enormous inefficiencies downstream. Knowledge sharing and training are virtually non-existent where it matters most. Very painful to see simple projects with huge potential to generate revenue fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support what is proven effective. Reward those who are an integral part of the development of these systems and stop sinking money into projects which do not offer a significant return. Bells and whistles do not pay the bills.
