    I have been working at Scottrade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Work-life balance is good (at least for our department). Our managers sincerely believe family comes first.
    2. Work hours are pretty flexible.
    3. Excellent 401(k) with company matching.
    4. Bonuses (though not guaranteed), are paid twice a year.
    5. Annual raises.
    6. Privately-held company.
    7. CIO very engaged and passionate about the company.
    Overall, I would recommend this company to others, as long as they don't expect to stay more than about 5 years. I see the outlook improving, but there's a lot of required work taking place right now, leaving little time to work on other wanted and needed features.

    Cons

    1. IT grew very quickly and I think they have struggled to keep up with staffing and process.
    2. Salaries could be better.
    3. Some departments promote quickly, while others see very few promotions.
    4. Losing its "small company" feel.
    5. Although we get support from supervisors and managers, higher-level management seems disconnected and doesn't always value feedback from their direct reports.
    6. Heavy process can delay progress.
    7. Professional development is encouraged, but workloads are often too heavy to allow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE DOING THE WORK! Please don't make decisions which you are uninformed or under-informed to make.
    2. Figure out how to keep your current employees instead of just saying, "Good-bye."
