I have been working at Scottrade as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Full training, very helpful associates that assist in training and getting used to the work.
Upper management, whether it be for interns or broker trainees, are very helpful.

Cons

Salary can be improved, since everyone, even back office positions, get bonuses. Not just brokers.

Advice to Management

Consider increased bonuses for your brokers, it provides an incentive to perform even better.

    Cons

    - Health care plan could be better
    - No pension
    - Only 12 days vacation starting out, 18 days after 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Really needs more vacation days to be competitive. Also needs more focus on technology to stay competitive with other online brokers, but doesn't seem to be a priority with management yet.

    Pros

    It is very steady and stable. You can work your entrie career at Scottrade and earn an average living.

    Cons

    While the company has never had a layoff, the poorest performing employees still work there. The company is conservative, but it also means being the last one to the proverbial party in terms of technology and products. Management and HQ is not customer-centric, but rather statistics and metrics-focused. Those who have ambition leave after a few years for better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    As the recent internal survey suggests, communication needs to be improved throughout the company.
