    I have been working at Scottrade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Scottrade's HR appears to have an ability to hire individuals with great soft-skills. I enjoyed working at Scottrade because of those I worked side-by-side with on projects.

    Cons

    The culture so Scottrade brought me to the company. However, that culture is changing in a negative manner. Upper management has become so focused on unrealistic productivity that project managers typically work between 50-70 hours a week. The downside is that regardless of how many hours you work managements expectations (check-lists) still isn't achievable. The bottom line is that their new expectations are unattainable!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should try to walk in their project managers shoes. Once they've failed at meeting the expectations in Scottrade's 'work-life home-life balance motto'. Perhaps they'll reset expectations before their best assets leave the company.
