    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance - Fantastic learning and personal development potential - Industry certifications and licenses paid for, time ear-marked for training and studying - Good work culture, employee morale

    Cons

    - Less than competitive pay (low base, average bonus/incentive) - Non merit-based promotions and advancement - Pay increases and promotions are minute and inconsequential - Somewhat of a "worker-bee" mentality at the Sr. Manager level and down

    Advice to Management

    Landing top talent that will take many departments to the "next level" requires commensurate compensation. A single top-performing employee will produce and contribute twice what an under-paid, under-qualified worker will.
