Hi all,

I am interviewing monday at the 717 5th avenue branch of Merrill Lynch.

I heard Park Avenue is a better branch.

I am a financial advisor with Guardian and Park Avenue Securities looking to make a move.

I am pretty good technically. I have a good market and great cold calling skills, but I KNOW that I will NEED serious and big SUPPORT in learning how to network and build  business in my natural market.  It's not something that I've ever had to do before.

Are there people to talk to and who will coach you?

What about the 5th avenue branch in general?  Are the people nice?  Supportive?  Ready to help?

Check which branch is managed by Joe Doonan.  He is a great guy who is very focused and rewards hard work.  he's not going to listen / put up with B.S. but he will help you be focused and work smart.

The only person who will make you successful is you.
