    Pros

    Good pay, lots of OT, if you work hard bonuses are great. You are treated good and can do quite well with bonuses

    Cons

    Politics but that's any job. There is poor communication between teams and departments. Information does not get to where it needs to in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communications between departments and teams,

    Pros

    TD goes out of its way for its employees. Time off is encouraged and wages are reviewed to the current market periodically.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere can be a little to enthusiastic at times, but really its not a bad thing.
