Long time employee, great place to start a career.

Manager (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe name brand has improved from 10 or 20 years ago. No fundamental culture change in 8 years, more of the same.

ConsAs company has grown, politics are more and more evident. Many just out to save or keep the job they do and surround them self with "yes" men. No fundamental culture change in 8 years, more of the same.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful of the politics, if feedback is asked for, please do not use it against the person providing the feedback. May need to move the culture forward, no fundamental culture change in 8 years.

The business side of TDA is great, the IT side is treated terribly.

Manager (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE

I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits, decent pay and nice facilities. The people that work there are generally very talented and drink the kool-aid in the first year, so they are a pleasure to work with.

ConsLong hours for IT. Treated like a number. Unwillingness to adjust salaries slightly to save talent or people with many years of experience. Lopsided pay vs experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing games with pay and give people what they are worth.

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

Worked for 6 years all over the company

Learning & Development (Former Employee)
Omaha, NE

I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAmazing people to work with! Terrific managers that enabled me to grow professionally.

ConsOver the last two years the ability for career advancement was almost nothing. Upper management would already have their "favorites" picked out for positions leaving little opportunity to the rest.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that you hire a terrific bunch of talent in all areas of the company. Ensure you are giving EVERYBODY a fair shot at career advancement whether that's new positions, education, etc.
