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

    Pros

    Awesome boss and team to work with. Never got coffee or made copies for other people. I learned so much in this job. My boss allowed me to shadow him on buying and selling stocks and bonds, as well as client meetings. They make a point to explain what your doing rather than assigning meaningless tasks. I got to work with all the financial advisors on the team to find what I was most interested in. I received 3 different job offers from Merrill at the end of my internship.

    Cons

    If you don't care much about the internship they can tell right off the bat. First impressions are everything.
