I worked at Merrill Lynch part-time (less than an year)

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.

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great resources. great research. not tied to desk.

    Cons

    production hurdles are tough to hit. only 1 percent make it thru pmd program. not given office but a cubicle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lower the pmd hurdles. its not right only 1 percent of pmds make it thru the program.
