    Internal technology issues with crm. Get them fixed asap. Upgrade branches with technology that will impress client base including a way for clients to see our award winning think or swim platform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the computers working 100% of the time. Need resources to help close business faster and including closing advisory business

    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and the company provided everything I needed for success. There were plenty of opportunities for advancement and the company was open/transparent about what was going on.

    Cons

    None really. It's a company that enables it's employees to take charge of their own personal growth. That may not be for everyone and requires some ambition to rise through the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see a leader in a position that does not belong there, provide them with additional training or place them where they can do more harm than good.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Modern facilities and technology. Casual attire.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Goals keep getting raised. People quitting without jobs lined up because they hate it so much. Clueless, idle managers thanking their lucky stars that aren't the poor saps that have to deal with non-stop calls from usually arogant and often ignorant clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the insane focus on sales stats and productivity so that the workplace isn't a living hell for the phone reps.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun company a lot of outings and meet great people

    Cons

    the company promotes hiring but does not hire anyone. There were four positions open and they exceeded the amount of people so they could hire interns for a lower price in order to do work that the regular employees did not have to do. They kept telling me with my hard work I could be hired and with my good ethic and hard work they continuously implied that. Late did I find out I was just cheap slave labor and no promise for a full time position was offered. I do not think they hired anyone in the Baltimore area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not make false promises to interns
