    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They place a great emphasis on what you can do and not as much on where you went to school. Paid study time to go through your initial licensing as well as additional paid time for studying outside of work if a promotion requires any additional licensing. Matching 401k, generous paid time off, profit sharing and from what I hear decent health insurance (I get insurance through my partner). They are inclusive and have a good set of values that are demonstrated through how they treat their employees.

    Cons

    We offer great benefits however I’d love to see us work towards more progressive benefits such as a better paternity leave benefit. As well we should offer a better transition back to work after maternity leave including part time return for women to help encourage increasing women in our industry.

    Advice to Management

    We stand by our value proposition that we offer a higher quality of our products and services over the cheapest rates. Make sure that we are properly investing in our technology so that we are able to deliver to clients a platform and trading experience that is never interrupted or delayed and that is flawless and exceeds their yet to be known expectations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TD Ameritrade (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview conduct by someone who sounded as if they were 15 years old. Questions were deceptive and interview did not last long. Kind of strange considering the fact that I have years of experience and possess all the required licenses. Must be looking for a recent college grad to pay them pennies
