Attn all Merrill Brokers:
Did you see Ken Lewis on 60 minutes tell you that you were making too much money and that he was going to bring it "in line" with bank comp?
You may enjoy a quasi independent status outside the bank and enjoy 25% less pay because you a with the "best brand in the world"....
You will enjoy annualized comp and all stock bonuses. You will enjoy many other colleagues getting their mits all over your book.
You will absolutely love the beauracracy of a Pentagon sized corp that is now partly owned by the Govt.
I am betting you love it so much you go Independent and you better do that before you sign that lovely non compete.
