"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."
"Training is subpar and employees tend to lack strong communication skills"
"The company tries to provide learning opportunities and experiences for associates. Difficult, but rewarding field."
"Great company with the best tools in the industry to allow you to succeed as a financial professional. An industry leader, you'll have everything you need to take care of your clients and ensure that you are able to grow and sustain your business by providing the best level of service to be found anywhere in finance."
"For the short time I worked at BofA, I really enjoyed everything about it."
"I've worked at Merrill for 2 years. It is a fast paced environment. It requires you to pay attention to detail and be efficient with minimal supervision."
"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."
"I have no review for my company at this time."
"I have worked at Merrill Lynch since 2013. It has been a great opportunity for me to grow my career and I am proud to have been a part of that organization"
"Worked there for 4 years - technical environment was not challenging enough and no one seemed to have the drive to innovate. Most of the work was about maintaining the status quo."
"The below review applies to only the retail banking and mass affluent "Merrill Edge", NOT Merrill Lynch platform. In my opinion, Bank of American places emphasis on individual daily numbers without taking steps to understand fully how those numbers came to be for any individual contributor. Due to its failures to dive deeper in understanding these results, it is not creating a level playing field for same spaced employees; thus alienating and losing top talent due to local management flaws."
"Was a technology consultant for 3 and half years and have very good experience working with their management."
