I worked at Merrill Lynch as an intern for more than a year

Pros

Challenging environment which expects success, but encourages and helps all team members to meet that goal. People have high demands for their colleagues and themselves, with high levels of pride in their work.

Cons

Not everyone is friendly and team oriented. There are a number of abrasive personalities, as to be expected on Wall Street.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure team development is an essential part of each department, it keeps employees invested in each others success.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Merrill Lynch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to very talented people and fast learning environment. Banking will open a lot of doors to different industries and will give you at a very young age exposure to senior management teams at different companies. Don't take this for granted. Still a strong brand name

    Cons

    The hours. The location. Palo Alto is good for families not young people. At the time it was an inverted pyramid, more senior people than junior. Will probably not work on the best tech deals on the street. MD's don't do a good job of helping junior people land jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your junior people, associates and analyst work very hard for you...there should be an effort to helpl them land strong jobs after the program

    Current Employee - Wealth Management Intern in New York, NY

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and constantly working to improve business. They have a solid pool of talented advisors with great personalities.

    Cons

    Intern opportunities are slightly ambiguous. I'm not sure if there are any full-time opportunities that this internship could lead to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. The people already employ do great work with maintaining and generating client lists. Have details for interns in regards to full-time opportunities.
