    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good, you are on your own. Much is expected and if you are not up to the challenge, look elsewhere. Tough to transition from other industry.

    Cons

    You are on your own, very tough to move up in management. Help not readily available and CA's are not prepared to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink model with integration of BOA

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    has good name recognition in the industry. Peer groups are very welcoming and knowledgable.

    Cons

    Bank of America acquired ML and since that time, the work environment has signficantly declined. Too process oriented, very rigid. HR always supports management and concerns raised by employees not always addressed appropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Need to allow Merrill Lynch managers to manage in ways that make them and thier offices successful. BAC banks are not investment banks and need to accept different mgmt style and philosophy to be successful.
