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.

    Pros

    - Great work/life ballance
    - Company is growing, so good chance to get in and advance
    - Never had a layoff
    - Consistently rated one of the best places to work in IT.
    - Casual work environment for IT

    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

    Scottrade is reasonably employee friendly. Its business isn't going as fast and it would be nice for it to expand into other profitable trading areas like fx.

    Cons

    currently its technology seems a bit old and is falling behind in a fast evolving electronic market. Would be a plus if it beefs up its IT.
