Slightly behind competitors but devoted to getting ahead. Healthy culture and continues to move in the right direction.

(Current Employee)
Billings, MT

ProsThe company tries to do the right thing in all it does. Its a place where hard work is recognized and there is a culture that focuses on recognizing hard working associates. Benefits in-line with competitors and top sales associates can do extremely well with total compensation.
Products and compensation are developed to reduce conflict of interest with the client as much as possible and I think they succeed. Employees can sleep at night since we try to do the right thing for each client.
TDA feels like its moving in the right direction and still has that scrappy young feeling like there is more to do to be better. Management seems to get it that there is still work to be done here.

ConsNeed to figure out the branch model more to provide growth for people who have been there a while. Too much focus on front end of pipeline - let the stragglers be managed one on one instead of the whole team if they are weak.
Management is definitely political - obvious in certain areas of the country like East coast.
The compensation plan does not encourage developing relationships with existing clients. Its more transactional. Minor focus on high net worth clients but not enough. Resulting client interactions are transactional.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove beyond the activity based stuff and more on the relationship building with clients. Skew the comp plan so those weak on the basics flunk out and the strong performers are rewarded more. Focus on the next level instead.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
