    Pros

    Co-workers were very good people, and created a great work environment.

    Cons

    Corporate leadership was terrible. Individuals in the senior management and up category rarely have a clue about what the job is of the people that they represent. Manager and assistant manager jobs go to people that aren't the best workers or have the best track record--they generally go to those that went out to lunch or drinks all the time with those that promoted them.

    This is a good start if you are 21 years old and want to suck them dry for the license options and move on. Most people do go that route.

    Pros

    Many different positions to transfer to

    Cons

    Metrics continue to be raised by out of touch management. They continue to burn out good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management should realize that there is a limit to what people can do. Also raise employee wages. The CEO got a 29% raise and most employees received 1% to 2 %

    Pros

    Easy going environment. "Once" you get in you can stick around and have career movement.

    Cons

    It seemed to have a lot of turnover with employees. Someone you work with this month may be gone in half a year.

    Cons

    Shadowing the back office..it was boring.

    Pros

    If you work hard, you will have as much opportunity as you want. Pay is great for the work/life balance and the senior management is extremely credible. TD also believes in giving back to associates through training and better tools in the office.,

    Cons

    In order to move up, you will most likely need to relocate to other parts of country. Although this may not be as important, the company still doesn't have the respect of a big Investment Bank like Goldman or Morgan Stanley.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the values aligned towards having no conflicts of interest. This is best for the associate and the client.
