Great team members....pay/benefits/work-from-home options were lackluster

I worked at Scottrade as an intern

Pros

The team was focused on the task at hand, yet were very friendly and worked together to accomplish goals. Discounts around the St. Louis area (gyms, free Blues/Cards tickets, etc.)

Cons

Internship was a bit mundane and repetitive, sometimes had to plead management for work. Pay for full-timers was not even close to being competitive, even if the culture is decent. Lackluster benefits, time off, and work-from-home policies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more work-from-home/flexible work schedules and don't lowball on pay.

    I have been working at Scottrade as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great learning experience, great people to work with, and an overall fun environment. If your a college student looking for an entrance into financial markets, this may be for you.

    Cons

    Busy work is far too common. Interns are limited in the amount of work they can do and are made to much into secretaries rather than interns. There are days in which the job may correlate to that of a office minion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give interns more authority and more important tasks.

    I worked at Scottrade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k matching
    Wellness benefits
    Health Insurance
    Technical support

    Cons

    Limited vacation days
    Limited advancement
    Days and long and boring--answering unsophisticated investors questions all day long
    Bonus plan is very low
    Overall pay was no where near orginal job estimates
    Quarterly performance reviews, much effort, little reward - much of bonus is based on Customer Statifaction for branches and branch is responsible for things that they have no control over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add additional vacation days
    Allow for regional positions that would allow for more upward mobility
    Do annual and semi-annual performance reviews/bonus plan instead of quarterly
    Reward branches based on asset gathering, profitablity, etc.
