    Current Employee - Marketing Intern in Brea, CA

    I have been working at Merrill Lynch as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Flexible, but very results oriented.

    Cons

    High turnover/dropout for entry level. Extremely high-pressure first 3 years. 90% drop/fail. You don't know who will be dropped or quit next. Although, if you are working HARD - snapping necks and cashing checks- the opportunity is incredible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns a run for their money, but also a rich experience. Cold calling should be apart of a greater and more fulfilling purpose.
