Good place to work, depends on branch office manager.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I worked at Merrill Lynch

ProsAs a financial advisor, they are one of the few places to pay you a salary the first year.

ConsI hoped to get better sales training and mentors. Our coaches were not helpful when it came to sales at all. I did not meet my goals and was fired. After I left, there were a lot of my coworkers who also ended up in the same position. When I interviewed, I was told 1 in 2 got through the program. In reality, it was about 1 in 20. Thankfully, the coach was replaced after I left and I hope they are doing better.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up a program to help the younger financial advisors get help when they ask for it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
