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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    They'll pay for you to get your series 7, and 63, if that's of interest to you, but most places do, so meh. Pay, and benefits used to be decent for the area. No idea where they are now. Things were a lot better under the previous CEO.

    Cons

    If you're not a sycophant, and a suck-up, you're not going to go very far with the company. Way to focused on sales, regardless of what team you're actually on. Asinine metrics that impact your bonus, but are in some cases entirely out of your control. The current CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up? People are individuals, not "brands"? Does it even matter?
