I have been working at Scottrade as an intern (More than 3 years)

Pros

great learning experience, great people to work with, and an overall fun environment. If your a college student looking for an entrance into financial markets, this may be for you.

Cons

Busy work is far too common. Interns are limited in the amount of work they can do and are made to much into secretaries rather than interns. There are days in which the job may correlate to that of a office minion.

Advice to Management

give interns more authority and more important tasks.

    Days and long and boring--answering unsophisticated investors questions all day long

    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.
