    A Learning Experience

    Infrastructure Analyst (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsExposure to many different platforms and application suites. There is a really steep learning curve and you have to catch on quick to be successful.

    ConsManagement is very unstable and petty. Your manager one week is your co-worker the next and vice versa. Also, people tend to nurse grudges. CYA must be in your DNA to work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead, dont manage. Too many of the managers in ThinkTECH are out of their depth and take on projects way larger that they could ever complete on budget or time. Instead of rolling up their sleeves and working with their teams to get projects done, they crack the whip and degrade and stress out their subordinates...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Best

    Director (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsGreat people. Flat org structure. Great work-life balance. Management really cares about its employees. Best company I've ever worked for.

    ConsAlways getting mixed up with TD Bank which is an entirely different company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strong company but the work in IT is boring

    Software Developer I (Former Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsFriendly people. Work-life balance is good if you want to leave the office promptly at 5.

    ConsThere's not much room for innovation and excellence. There is a culture of "good enough" when it come to software design. Noone wants to go the "extra mile" to exceed expectations. Thats okay for some people but if you want to innovate or apply new skills/knowledge, Ameritrade is not the shop for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire assertive middle managers who want to push employees to do more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good stepping stone and good for recent grads

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    Prosregular 9-5 business hours, good work/life balance. The benefits are decent

    ConsBoring and it's in Jersey. Managers are really good and making themselves appear productive to directors and MD. Salary is definitely low for finance sector.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo some work and don't throw everything to the analysts. Listen to why your employees are leaving and look at where they are going, learn from that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    TD Ameritrade provided the best corporate environment experience I've ever had.

    Infrastructure Management Intern (Former Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsCollaborative colleagues, very open atmosphere & environment, a company with very strong technological grounds and applications for financial services (for those wanting to get into technology). Overall, a phenomenal place to work in if you are looking to get into finance and technology.

    ConsGetting software on your machine can be a LONG wait some times given the security protocols put in place, but who would not find that in any corporate work place.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
