Managed $400,000,000 in assets at Merrill Lynch. Never worked for anyone except Orkin Plantscaping (Pest Control) and left after 3 years. I was the Eastern half of the operation and they kept putting expenses on my P and L to cover their loses. My Division Vice President used my revenue and profit to cover thr loses by division. Then I worked for Merrill Lynch to and cushioned the red on their P&L with the black on mine.
