    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great analyst/associate training programs. Good exposure to clients and a very reputable name for your resume. Smart people throughout although a strict chain of command and the opposite of an "open-door" policy limit what great talent can accomplish.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic environment. Joined during the ML days and following integration with BofA a ludicrous level of governance hurdles were introduced. Governance and risk committees at many (redundant) levels which drastically impede the ability to get business done.
