    I have been working at TD Ameritrade

    Pros

    Does a great job offering agnostic platform for salesforce to help it's clients.
    Still Growing.
    Management very smart about forward thinking and position firm for growth up until now.
    Still tons of potential for the firm to grow.

    Cons

    Due to exceptional growth, associate experience has suffered terribly. Firm doesn't balance associate experience well with shareholders and profitability. Politics are at times out of control.
    Compensation still not in line with competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to associates needs or slippery slide down the wrong slope could become impossible to stop

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement
    Colleagues are professional, knowledgable
    Support and technology enable me to focus almost 100% on sales
    Company is positioned for tremendous growth

    Cons

    Company has corporate hubs in boring places like Omaha, NE and Draper, UT--so be prepared to travel to unglamorous places for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe need to hire more people from outside, to gain broader knowledge base of how to build a more sales-oriented culture.
