    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time

    Pros

    Great team to work with. The people on the front lines are AMAZING, helpful, knowledgeable, and the work/life balance is superior to most.

    Cons

    Politics wins over client needs EVERY TIME. It doesn't matter who or what is right or wrong- it only matters who likes you and who doesn't. They rarely if ever promote from within. The SEC should look at this firm- That's why I split.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who keeps you in business: Clients and their direct contacts

    The people were great, but too much daily company minutia got in the way of sales production

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the branches were relaxed, though were a significant stress to produce, you could leave work at work. In general, it was a collegial environment with coworkers, which means that a colleague was willing to help.

    Cons

    There was too many things that corporate required that turned into busy work, essentially just 'checing a box', but no real value behind the activity. Company held employees to aggresively selling product that sales force found questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Comp Plan (don't always try to ask for sales force to sell more and pay them less year after year. 2. Focus on the activities that lead to actual production and lessen 'busy work' work load.
