    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Base to start and you learn a lot
    Great brand name, can open doors
    Basically the image helps you more than anything, a prestige comes with the name that you can only get at a few other firms

    Cons

    Its still a wirehouse, they are all the same. If you don't have family with money, or joining a team, there is little to no chance of succeeding. You will build up you Assets, miss hurdles, then those assets will be divided amongst the senior advisors. Rinse and repeat.
