    I have been working at Merrill Lynch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People here are easy to work with, although there are always a few bad apples. As in most places, it is your direct manager who gets to decide the quality of your stay. I am lucky to have had a few managers and most of them are very understanding. Work-life balance is very respected here. There are times when I had to work extra hours to get the job done, but that is sort of expected from any responsible individuals who is serious about his or her career, wouldn't you say? Hard work is usually noticed and rewarded, but don't be afraid to let our manager know. If you are lucky, you might even get to work from home full-time like many of my co-workers.

    Cons

    Since Bank of America has taken over the company, benefits and bonuses are not as good as they once were. Performance unfortunately is still based on stack ranking. And bureaucracy and red-tape can take a toll on you.

    Advice to Management

    I know management is trying to make things better and simpler, but there is still a lot of room to improve. We can be better! And please, train the managers and enable them.
