Great company culture and experience

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

Pros

The people there are very friendly and helpful. There are high expectations as expected, but more than sufficient resources to help you succeed in your role.

Cons

There aren't as many options to move around the firm in the Wealth Management division. The work becomes pretty routine, and I don't get to travel much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Incorporate a bit more flexibility

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a job. While it does not pay very well it is better than nothing. Perhaps the only good benefit is when you have a child you can take 6 weeks off paid. This is for both the mother and the father.

    Cons

    The pay stinks. Bonuses have been done away with. Raises are minimal, if you get one. Benefits have been slashed to the bone and the prospects for the health insurance going forward are scary. Your phones are recorded, your email is recorded, and now they even take screenshots of your computer as you work.

    There is very little room to move up in the company, and there is very very little funding for anything. So if something is broken don't except it to get fixed. I don't just me the software programs, you should see the chairs!

    If the choice is between working here any somewhere else, choose somewhere else. If you have no other options, do this until you can find a place that appreciates their workers.
