    Consultant-driven, catchphrase bingo, no soul, rudderless.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable salary, reliable paycheck. Perfect job for a newbie while they seek out more meaningful employment. If you like a management track consisting solely of reviewing spreadsheets, attending interminable catered meetings, and giving cut-n-paste performance reviews, this is the joint for you.

    Cons

    Any company that buys their mission statement from a consultant is suspect in the first place. Same goes for a company that uses clip-art in internal and external advertising instead of actual humans.

    Look up 'style over substance' and you'll find a photo of the HQ. United Way, Habitat For Humanity, LEED, etc.--whatever it takes to get noticed; a PR facade covering up a soulless company. NFL and Olympic sponsorship used primarily to impress corporate peers.

    The front-end is really sexy--whatever it takes to get a well-heeled client in the door. The back end is chewing gum and chickenwire and it doesn't take a client too long to note the bait-n-switch. Personally, I find it disgusting to work for an enterprise that has consideration for an acceptable amount of lying to clients and associates. Everything is driven by 'service level', not satisfying all clients, but an acceptable, arbitrary amount. And I remember when we used to take care of every client.

    Complaints and constructive criticism is met by shining-on, cut-n-paste acknowledgement, timeframes for resolution that last *years*--and calling out this inactivity is met by more catchphrase bingo except this time management hides behind your supposed non-adherence to 'people matter' rather than your defense of 'clientcentricity'.

    Management is top-heavy with people with job titles but no accountability. I'm not advancing the opinion that TDA management is a cult of personality because that implies there is a personality in the first place. This company has no soul and no ambition other than what a consultant tells them to have. Further, the place isn't overtly political in terms of cliquishness but the Peter Principle is very much in play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outlook? The company will continue to make money (due to being connected in a political industry), and that's the only metric that matters to them. That gets old very quick and isn't how the company used to be. The company used to exist on a tripod of customer/associate/shareholder and you can guess which two aren't mentioned anymore. I cannot stress this enough: TDA Has No Soul. You can't buy that, you have to nurture it and maintain an iron vigil on it. People here ran through walls when someone named Ricketts or Moglia was on the board, in the head office or on the 5-K. The current CEO, Fred Tomczyk is a Toronto-Dominion company man who engenders no empathy or understanding--a hack who is very good at blowing smoke and keeping Toronto happy--to the detriment of clients and associates.
