Pros

Excellent investment company offering broad range of investment services. The training program at Merrill Lynch is excellent for new advisors studying for their licensing to become a broker. Merrill offers investment products as good or better than anyone in the financial services industry.

Cons

The investment market is very challenging and it takes quite some time build a large book of business cacapable of generating substantial income.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest additional support for new advisors in setting up speaker programs for potential clients. It is a great tool that is underutilized by new advisors.

    Pros

    The BofA is one of the largest banks in America, which makes it easy to move if you would like to. Merrill Lynch research is some of the best, which is fantastic to have access to.

    Cons

    I got a raw deal on this one, but I think that this is a unique situation and does not reflect Merrill Lynch or BofA as a whole.
