I worked at Scottrade

Pros

Continuous improvement is part of the organizational culture at Scottrade. They really want you to keep learning and progressing as a professional. Great place for MIS professionals get some exerience in the finance field.

Cons

I felt like I left without really understanding my purpose as an intern. I just had the feeling they hired me to study every day and learn as much as possible about the company and capital markets in general. There wasnt a set goal to be accomplished.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better organize your internship program. I graduated in Finance and went in thinking that I would get an experience in the finance industry, but it ended up being an IT internship as I learned a whole lot about data bases!

    I have been working at Scottrade

    Pros

    Expressing your feelings about the Obama Care in a Blog without any backlash.
    Great Job in promoting from within the company.

    Cons

    First, I'm not "allowed" to say anything negative about the company but here we go...
    Promoting from within let's Scottrade low ball everyone when it comes to Salary.
    Bonus has been a record breaking low compared to other companies.
    Must move to STL if you're looking for a corporate promotion.
    Scottrade only allows certain people to answer questionnaires when it comes "top 100 best places to work".
    etc, etc, etc, etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep your political opinion outside of work. Please be fair and balance with each department. Please don't allow family members to work there if they're related to someone in HR. That brings everyone down...

    Workload could be light at times and looking for more to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep continuing to invest in employees. The company is rapidly growing and people make the company what it is. Also, give interns holiday pay.
