      Before Merrill Lynch is taken over by Bank of America, all the staff in the bank are like family members to me and it was a really fun place to work for.

      Cons

      After BoA took over, the HR team is not very helpful in resolving our HR related issues.

      Pros

      Merrill Lynch/Bank of America it’s a great company to work for. The financial advisor role requires a lot of discipline since your success depended merely on your willingness to succeed.

      Cons

      As with any large institution, sometimes processes can be a bit slow. However this is rarely an issue

      Pros

      Amazing team atmosphere within Merrill Lynch. Extremely supportive management, caring, very understanding when it comes to having disabilities and needing any kind of leave of absence. Very supportive of career advancement. Workload is manageable, and can easily ask for more or less once accustomed to your position.

      Cons

      Very competitive, can be hectic with market volatility, expected goals are pushed very hard in certain instances, outsourced back office support can be challenging to work with.
