Merrill To Lay Off 400 Brokers In Training Program
I believe that they are terminating trainees with 6 months or more of a production number.
In our office we have let go all most all of POA’s and many of PMD’s. Even the ones that had met their goals, but fell behind because of the market. My best advice is to have a backup plan. You don’t want a termination on your record. In our city Morgan Stanley is hiring, so Wachovia and Smith Barney was hiring but that may have changed. You can talk to your clients about the changes and prepare them for the move, i.e. “With the merger of Bank of America I have began exploring other options that I feel will be a better fit you”. Or something along those lines.
