Current Employee - Stockbroker in Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Stockbroker in Saint Louis, MO

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

Pros

Relaxed work environment, good benefits, stable, they understand that we are all human and make mistakes, do not take work home

Cons

Low pay, less than ideal clientele, lack of communication among departments, not much room for advancement unless you want to move to St Louis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everything has to be a free service. If you want better clients then expand the RIA services and give your employees more than a tooth pick and duct tape to work with. Your DOS systems and in- house computer software cannot keep up with the changing technological requirements

    Former Employee - Branch Manager in Wilmington, DE
    Former Employee - Branch Manager in Wilmington, DE

    I worked at Scottrade full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The culture is relaxed, friendly coworkers, very customer service oriented. The 401 match is currently a 50% match. Over 500 branch locations.

    Cons

    The bonuses are almost non-existent, No room for growth beyond branch manager unless you are willing to move to Saint Louis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to paying bonuses from the branch P&L. Each branch would be more involved with the success of the company if they feel they are truly contributing.
