I worked at Merrill Lynch

Pros

The health coverage and benefits that you receive from Merrill Lynch were a big plus when working for this company..

Cons

I started working full time for Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management division straight out of college so I took an entry level position with the firm as a client associate. I acquired my Series 7 & 66 securities licenses within 2 years of me working and was never offered any opportunity for advancement within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat all your employees equally whether they are a top producer or someone in the back office they are all just as important.

    I worked at Merrill Lynch

    Pros

    They showed respect for the employee and had a great work place environment. The location was convenient to public transportation.

    Cons

    The training at Merrill Lynch left something to be desired. I was given to "standard, substandard" job training and turned loose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training at Merrill Lynch left something to be desired. I was given to "standard, substandard" job training and turned loose. They need to improve their entry training.

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch

    Pros

    They have great training. I have learned so much since I have been there. They spend a lot of money on their training.

    Cons

    It is very hard to be new in the industry and get clients. You have to Cold call A LOT and cold walk and do seminars........................ all while the clock is to your hurdles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Job! They will do everything to help you. The trainee program is a big part of their grade so they want you to succeed.
