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

Pros

Good way to understand finance concepts, especially if you plan on getting your series 7 and 63. depends of course on how well you click with the particular branch manager and employees at your particular branch but overall i enjoyed working there, the workload was managable and you didn't have to take your work home with you. Scottrade also had some nice little benefits as an intern, like the visiting supervisor from HQ would buy us lunch when he visited on occasion.

Cons

there's not much room for growth, unless you go to their HQ in st louis the only positions available in the branches are broker and branch manager. they're sort of a passive firm in that they're not aggressive with sales calls etc which some of their competitors (charles schwab, etc) do although they are starting to move towards a more sales driven environment

Advice to Management

become a bit more aggressive with acquiring clients
