    TD Ameritrade is a great wholesome company to work for

    Financial Representative Broker (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsProfessional, open door, lots of associate engagment, and overall very open to helping you advance in which ever career path you decide to go with

    ConsThe series 7 is difficult to obtain. Also usually have to stay in postion for 6-12 months before attempting to move to another one.

    Awesome place to work with Awesome people!

    Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsThe best thing about this place is that it is not your standard '9-5'. There isn't a clock that you punch in and out of, the people you work with end up being more like family as there are always events outside of work like Habitat for Humanity or other community events. The compensation is reasonable and managers truly have an open door policy.

    ConsHonestly, I never found anything bad about working at TD Ameritrade, there may have been one or two people that I didn't mix well with but there are so many other good people here that you don't even notice that rare person you might not like to work with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was great. They were fun and easy going while maintaining a professional relationship. I would've stayed here longer had I not relocated to San Francisco to return to school. I would apply in a heart beat if there was an opening today!

    Retirement Account Rep

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are laid back. My teammates are awesome. Management does a good job. A lot of events. Cafeteria food taste pretty good and is pretty cheap. You can get a lot of free stuff, if you are good at your job. Popcorn Wednesdays.

    ConsOnly having 30 minutes for lunch. It flies by way too fast. Bathrooms are always closed because they are getting cleaned. It always seems to be the one you go to. The desks are too small.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot interested in bi-weekly coaching sessions.
