A great job to learn the business

Investment Consultant (Current Employee)
Short Hills, NJ

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

ProsCompetitive incentive package, plenty of leads/relationships to call

ConsQuarterly goals always reset to zero with no trails, little communication among departments

Advice to Senior ManagementIf truly interested in decreasing employee turnover, bonuses earned should be on top of a higher base salary. Also, too much change in annual targets.

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

I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than a year

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

I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time for less than a year

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

I worked at TD Ameritrade as an intern for less than a year

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
