Great co-workers, unfair annual review grading system.

Pros

Great empolyees. Good oppertunities for growth. Good benefits.

Cons

Insane expectations for registration. Company policies do not always line up with every line of business.

Advice to Management

Do not base client associate progress off of their FA's progress. Completely unfair when a CA works hard and has a stubborn FA that doesn't want anything to do with company changes.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule, decent pay, great benefits (vacation time, insurance, 401k.) Merrill pays for all of your training to get Series 7 and Series 66 licenses.

    Cons

    Everyday is the same. You talk to people about their 401ks, pensions, or stock options. I felt like a robot after time having the same conversation with different people over and over. You're on the phone all day too which was ok some days and dreaded others.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing management could really do to make the experience better. The cons are just the nature of the position. Management was very accomodating if I needed to be out or wanted time off.
