    Pros

    - Stable Company

    - Brilliant People
    - Excellent HR support
    - Mentorship programme
    - Even on trading desks, folks are very helpful mainly because of the people around them.

    Cons

    There are no cons really, but if you are a very impatient person - IT speed may frustrate you. I just got all urgent IT matters resolved myself.

    Pros

    People are a pleasure to work with across the franchise, strong sense of team culture. Good cross platform mobility, transfers between groups and even geographies are encouraged to enrich learning experience.

    Cons

    Depending on the business, can be hierarchical. Not a great deal of clarity regarding career progression and criteria for transitioning to next rung on the ladder.

    Pros

    TD, as a brand, is fantastic. The people are great, the values are excellent, the work/life balance is fantastic. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    No standard direction for technology. Every project seems to halt and move into a different direction, or halt and then start up again without any sort of explanation. Cross business communication is awful, especially between New York office and other locations.
