Pros

None. Hard to find any.

Cons

1. Cliquish atmosphere. in circle verses out circle. 2. Management talks about employees taking challenges outside of comfort zone. If you apply, there will be a candidate already lined up. 3. Management has no clue. Sinking ship, people leaving in droves. 4. Work atmosphere or culture is horrible. All that managers do is stand in hallways and laugh out loud for hours together. 5. Very few projects/work. 6. Lot of effort spent on getting the surveys filled in to show on the best places to work. Not genuine. making the ranks for computerworld survey and fortune survey feedback is the goal. 7. Talent does not matter, need to be good at brown nosing the manager. 8. exclusive groups, arrogance and politics are taking the company in the wrong direction.

Advice to Management

Get a grip on what is going on. Talent is leaving fast.

    Pros

    As far as balance with school work, I don't think it can get better in the St. Louis area than an internship with Scottrade. I got exposed to Microsoft development technology and was able to market those skills to potential full-time employers. Projects got significantly more interesting as time went on.

    Cons

    Many projects were quite dull at times, and it was easy to lose interest.

    Pros

    Convenient locations, 8 hour work days

    Cons

    They recently did a company wide Re Organization. This resulted in positions being eliminated and therefore several people in multiple departments were laid off.Their main goal is to continue being on the Fortune Top 100 Places to Work and disguising their lay offs as a Re Org. Bonuses have also been at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    The company is losing it's personal touch and family culture. Management chooses to hires their friends from outside the company rather than utilizing talent with in the firm and also plays favorites.
