Solid internship experience (private wealth management)

Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Program Intern (Former Employee)
Beverly Hills, CA

I worked at Merrill Lynch as an intern for less than a year

Pros- *Very* dependent on the wealth management adviser you work under and how much responsibility he/she is interested in giving you, as it is a very personal/non-standardized structure with much flexibility
- For me, this was a pro as I was given a solid amount of responsibility doing equity research for investment opportunities and learning the Bloomberg Terminal (very valuable as a rising sophomore), but YMMV
- Very flexible hours with only 20 hours per week/3 days per week, but again YMMV based on your manager
- Although minimum wage, still make money

Cons- Still a not insignificant amount of grunt work, specifically filing and updating binders and Excel spreadsheets
- Only paid minimum wage
- Work was often sporadic and somewhat random, but YMMV as always
- Didn't get to sit in on very many client/firm meetings

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
