    Pros

    I would say the people. I have spoken with Merrill employees who have left Morgan Stanley and Goldman simply because the culture is so much friendlier.

    Cons

    People who go into finance just for prestige will find it, though not to the same degree as at Goldman or MS. Your friends will still be impressed, don't worry.

    Pros

    Opportunity to study what I was interested in; High contact with different FAs; learned a lot using Merrill Lynch's software

    Cons

    Without knowing what to study it can sometimes be slow; Not as much client interaction as I would have hoped, in terms of investment strategies
