Be prepared to play the old school boys game and maybe get lucky with some supportive female colleagues.

Beware. Awful place for women. They just put a few marketing dollars to places like this site to try to pretend otherwise.

It's a boy's club. Don't be surprised if it feels inappropriate at times

Trilogy Financial Services

Financial Advisor, Finance

January 1970

At the Woodland Hills office the regional vice president was narcistic, micro manages people and made inappropriate comments to the ladies. Receptionist was encouraged to wear provocative clothing to please all the men at the office. Very often he would take receptionist to very long lunches.

They promote women within to leadership opportunities and also provide a lot of support for women throughout the company. Very male dominant from years past, but the women across the country are incredibly talented and it is a great network to work with.

Merrill Lynch is still a boys club. Management refuses to acknowledge this and give women the resources, pay, or access to level the playing field.
