I worked at Merrill Lynch as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Lots of freedom if you know what you're doing and where you want to be. Wealth management is all about managing your own book

Cons

Can be very little structure if you're not sure what you're looking for and want more guidance or ideas of how to move forward. Easy to get lost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan for new hires and understand what you will want them to do. Communicate these goals to them early on

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

    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.
