This firm is full of it …

I hear all sorts of rumblings about Merrill Lynch's unhappiness with Bank of America.

In particular, they don't like the fact that BoA has this culture of centralisation, as ML have always been decentralised teams who act dynamically and independently.

Maybe that's the reason they are no longer independent … they just don't realise it.

You see Brian Moynihan, who is the BoA man trying to pull all of this together, has caused ructions amongst many of the big swinging dicks in the corridors of Number Four, World Financial Center, New York 10080, where ML is based.

So much so, that one disgruntled employee is rumoured to have left a rather large brown and smelly package in the stairwell between the fifth and seventh floors.

Now I know that investment bankers can be animals, but isn't this taking it to extremes?

Oh no, sorry, withdraw that.

They're just showing how they really are full of BS.
