"I've worked for Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor for over a now and while the job can be rewarding and my employees were excellent to work alongside, supervisors and upper management liked to micromanage to force results. In a career that empowers individuals to build and manage their own book of business, it leaves little room for deviation from their view of success."

"The Wealth Management division in Merrill Lynch is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The monthly and annual goals are a stretch, however, if you can meet them you are looking at a very lucrative career in the financial industry. The company's research is top-notch, and resources for learning are available. However, this is a business and you will be on your own. Expect little to no help in building your own practice, this will be your own headache. Management will look at you as a number, as there are many candidates coming and going."

"I interned with Merrill Lynch this summer and worked on the largest Private Banking Investment Group in the nation, where we worked with ultra high net-worth individuals and public corporations managing their employee stock awards. I couldn't have imagined a better place to work and gain experience with. I made great relationships and learned as much as I could over the summer."
