I have been working at Scottrade as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

State of the art facilities and well run departments. Great training and development site. Headquarters has a good and cheap cafeteria, a gym, a dry cleaners, and a beautiful pond. Everything you need to succeed it available at any time. Many locations allow casual dress. Mangers are very flexible. Software and employee resources are customized for your convenience.

Cons

It has a very corporate feel, meetings and such are procedural and seem bureaucratic. Days start early, on the west coast the stock market opens early so work starts at 6 am. On the east coast work can still begin as early as 7, but the days are still only 8 hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doing a heck of a job.
