Little Free-Thinking Welcome - Stay in the Box!!

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE

ProsExcellent benefits, good pay (if you negotiate well at hire), and rarely did I have to work OT.

ConsLike a lot of these reviews have said, middle management is a huge problem - and those above them may get a lot of the blame for encouraging this attitude with the rewarding of yes-men. I was actually told once that the new initiative I was working on would step on one of those middle manager's toes so I should stop. Many of us have many stories like this. You learn to just keep your mouth shut, toe the party line, do nothing outside the box, and look for another job if you'd like anything more from your career.

I'm sure there are good areas to work and good managers at this company, but in two positions in different areas of the organization I saw the same thing. Remember that this is a company with a history of massive layoffs, so the people in charge are the people who made it through, and so are often those who managed to toe the line and not cause any waves. These are the people in management.

Advice to Senior Management"Innovation" is more than just a word you can paint on the walls or hand out in flyers. So many associates are having their ideas suppressed every day. Though you say this isn't the case, we all have seen multiple people let go because they dared to speak up or challenge the status quo (or challenged "the wrong person").

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

    Upper management is a little lost, and tend to undercut opportunities with poor decisions

    Omaha, NE

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Opportunity for above average pay Cons: That opportunity is typically over-sold to prospective employees. The reality is that they tend to over-hire and after recent restructuring they are… Advice to Senior Management: New management has so far consistently failed to provide anything positive to the average employee. Virtually every dollar spent is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
