Pros

The brand is well known to most investors which makes it easier to get your foot in the door with investors that have not had a bad past experience with Merrill.

Cons

The financial crisis damaged the reputation of the brand with some of the less savvy investors. It takes longer to get simple requests approved due to the size of the company.

Advice to Management

Don't let bank of America turn the brokerage and advisory side of the business into a culture that follows bank rules and does not reward performance past stated goals.

    Pros

    Merrill Lynch is a old name that is known by many, and really opens a lot of doors. Employees are very friendly and very easy to work with.

    Cons

    Merrill Lynch is very elitist, and at times turns off a lot of clients and potential clients. Because of this it creates one to work with who has the most money and not who you want to work with personally.

    Advice to Management

    Merrill Lynch has great management with nothing but the highest qualities. They expect a lot from you, but they truly understand about how to get the highest performance out of their employees.
