I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to work for a BB firm. Access to the best research on The Street and great platform. Almost zero cold calling having been brought onto a team of seasoned producers. Ability to learn from some of the best FA's and gain a tremendous amount of knowledge on the industry.

    Cons

    If you are not being brought into a team of established producers there will be lots of cold calling. There is a significant amount of pressure to produce, quickly, if you're not being brought onto a team of senior FA's.
