Good place to get your feet wet, not make money

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time

Pros- Good place to get exposed to a lot
- Health benefits are decent for the price
- Profit sharing goes direct into 401k (on top of contributions and match) and can be substantial

Cons- Yearly layoffs are the norm, remaining employees typically expected to pick up the slack. In some groups tech groups that means 60-70hr work weeks.
- Pay tends to be below average for the Financial sector
- Bonuses for the non-managers cap at 15% for most, then jumps to 30% if you are at the very top of the ladder.
- High rate of management turnover (middle up to and including C levels), typical management lasts 2-3 years
- Trouble prioritizing technical projects across the enterprise, you will have 50 #1 priorities to deliver and not really know what is most important.
- Management will gut projects to get them over the line for their bonuses, workers are then stuck doing constant bubble gum/duct tape patches.
- No resource planning for people, people get assigned to multiple projects where they may be required to do hundreds of hours of work in one week. This makes most projects slip for obvious reasons.
- Lots of manager build silos/islands

Advice to Senior Management- Prioritize projects clearly across the board
- Learn to do resource planning of people
- Get a more focused vision

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
