I worked at Scottrade as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Informative (you learn as much as you want), growth opportunity, small company culture, Scottrade university, PAID internship, able to keep up with the market. Free lunch/surprises sometimes especially on holidays. Off by 6pm, no working weekends and off on market holidays. No sales pressure. CEO is a friendly face in most of the branches.

Cons

Many separate programs to use, broad training, lots of wait time for customers (slow/boring), very part time. Unless you're graduating soon there is no room for growth, after graduation you can become a broker trainee. Most clients breeze past the front desk and go straight to a broker. Limited amount of work you are authorized to do. No sales pressure but also lazy comfortable employees and no incentive program.

Advice to Management

Focus on branch level; engage employees more. Branches have so much potential but

    I worked at Scottrade as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees, from the top of the organization to entry positions, enjoy what they do. Communication within the organization is also great.

    Cons

    The down-time after tax season could be considered a con for some, but if you find ways to fill that time doing something productive there is close to no cons.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing.
