Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Merrill Lynch as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of freedom if you know what you're doing and where you want to be. Wealth management is all about managing your own book

Cons

Can be very little structure if you're not sure what you're looking for and want more guidance or ideas of how to move forward. Easy to get lost.

Advice to Management

Plan for new hires and understand what you will want them to do. Communicate these goals to them early on

    I worked at Merrill Lynch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Outside of the free lunches from mutual fund reps there were none

    Cons

    No training given and basically thrown to the wolves to build your book of business without any direction
