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

Pros

"Best company to work for" There was previous great internal communication. It's a great start for a new worker. The culture is still better than most. A day off to volunteer and Money contributed for volunteering. Their internship program was very helpful. They're trying to get more competitive, and are successfully doing so, but changing their expectations of staff along the way and not appreciating the leaps and bounds they have made.

Cons

Losing sight of it's small company family-style approach. They don't care about their employees the way they used to. There is very little room to move up locally, or expect to move closer to home even though there are locations around the U.S. Affected by the need to cut back intern hours or have to pay benefits. This puts their young staff in a frustrating position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back some of the things that make your long-term employees so committed to the company before they all leave and you lose the loyalty that helped build the company from the ground based on amazing customer service. Provide some flexibility with hours of branch associates and tie in a way to help them reap the benefits of growing their branch based on what you grew your company on.

    I worked at Scottrade part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learned alot and pays interns. Management is always there to help and everyone works as a team. You feel as if you are part of a family. If you make mistakes no one yells at you or talks down but instead teaches you the proper way.

    Cons

    Can be really slow during down time but if you are smart you can use that time to learn more about products and procedures. Clients can be a bit needy when it comes to simple tasks. I also wish we could make recommendations since many people seemed to look for that but would walk away when we couldn't offer that service.
