Former Employee - Programmer Analyst in Omaha, NE

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

Pros

Nice people in the rank and file

Cons

This is a boring place to work. Creative and innovative thoughts are thwarted at best, punished at worst. Upper management is quite content to cut positions, under the guise of lean, lower benefits and anything else it takes to line their own pockets. Their salary structure is mediocre, raises are pitiful and there is little to provide you with initiative to do anything more than show up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why bother? They have no interest in hearing anything.

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

    Pros

    The pay was good, this included bonuses. In the beginning there were numerous advancement opportunities. No need to work nights or weekends. When I started Joe Moglia was CEO and he was great at motivating employees.

    Cons

    The job became impersonal. Culture changed from being service centered to being productivity centered where we were viewed more as a statistic by management, micromanagement at this company is awful, and there were frequent layoffs and reorganizations.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay, and exposure to the industry

    Cons

    Sales pressure to fill buckets is unfairly distributed. White men seem to have an easier time keeping their jobs when they don't fill all the buckets. It's disheartening to find out that I was let go for not filling a bucket, when I brought in 2M in managed assets in my first 5 months. Especially, since my counterparts failed to bring in half of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Earnestly seek diversity. Better training for management.
