    Pros

    Some very bright people are working at Merrill Lynch. Work/life balance for me was great (I worked remotely from home). Benefits were great.

    Cons

    Bonus payout decreased over the last 5-6 years I worked at Merrill Lynch. Company is in cost cutting mode for the next few years, so job security is a question.

    Bank of America........The name of the game is compliance, as far as the company is concerned, if your not getting sued, your winning.


  9. Internship

    Pros

    It was an awesome internship. I was an intern for the Management Team, so I observed the work of the Operations Team, over 90 Financial Advisors as well as the Administrative Managers. I also served as Receptionist for a few weeks in the mornings. Great experience!

    Cons

    You don't get out of the office much except for lunch. If you don't like sitting in a cubicle or being on the same floor for 8 hours a day, I wouldn't recommend this.
