I have been working at Scottrade as an intern for more than a year

Pros

Learned so much, great experience with their trading platform and communicating with clients. Branch manager was very nice and more than willing to answer all of my questions

Cons

Not much potential for growth. Positions above branch manager are only in St. Louis and Denver, and are very competitive. Great for an internship but not necessary and ideal career path.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Leaving satisfied interns will help the company promote from within. Keep being proactive with helping the interns gain experience on the trading platform, it is a great incentive.

    after 3 years as a Broker at Scottrade it went from BAD to Worse

    I worked at Scottrade full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    not many pro's, I came from another discount brokerage house with 7years of experience. Felt overly micro-managed to death.literally. This was the general consensus amongst my peers as well as many customers comments and ongoing observations.

    Cons

    management was very unfair. H.R. sided with a manager not a broker who was treated unfair on a daily basis. Bullied, harassed on the job. Had witnesses who were scared to come forth of fear of losing their job. ( new broker witnessed ) . unbelievable experience. had clients advise to sue the firm as well as bring forth a suit to the manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    one-sided, I was transferred when the manager should have been terminated.
