    I worked at Merrill Lynch

    Pros

    The hours were nice for a financial firm. 8:30 to 6:30 with an hr of lunch. The environment was not very cut throat as compared to other places. There were a lot of older workers who were willing to help understand.

    Cons

    Sometimes the promotion decisions were made on favoritism rather than ability. To move up faster you have to know someone a few levels up. Also, it is near impossible to talk to an MD, they are treated like gods, which leads to an environment where people are afraid to ask questions or raise concerns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce bureaucracy and create flatter org structures where an AVP would have access to the MD. Which will make people feel like they are making a difference and also give them a way to express their concerns to proper authorities.

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch

    Pros

    Good training program
    Willingness of others in the office to help

    Cons

    Working for BofA, not truly Merrill
    Eat what you kill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to increase the retention rate of younger PMD trainees, as this is a major concern of those looking for a job when they exit college that has security and an opportunity to grow over an extended period of time.
