    I worked at Scottrade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k matching
    Wellness benefits
    Health Insurance
    Technical support

    Cons

    Limited vacation days
    Limited advancement
    Days and long and boring--answering unsophisticated investors questions all day long
    Bonus plan is very low
    Overall pay was no where near orginal job estimates
    Quarterly performance reviews, much effort, little reward - much of bonus is based on Customer Statifaction for branches and branch is responsible for things that they have no control over.

    Advice to Management

    Add additional vacation days
    Allow for regional positions that would allow for more upward mobility
    Do annual and semi-annual performance reviews/bonus plan instead of quarterly
    Reward branches based on asset gathering, profitablity, etc.
