Former Employee - Scottrade- Intern in Fort Lee, NJ
Former Employee - Scottrade- Intern in Fort Lee, NJ
No opinion of CEO

Pros

-Paid Internship
-Flexible with schedule
-Work is relatively easy
-Manager is excellent at teaching certain skills that can translate into your professional career.

Cons

- Very mundane tasks
- Can spend hours with nothing to do
- NO PARKING ( Interns and Branch associates must PAY for their parking in Fort Lee) I wish I would have looked into that before leaving a good position I had to pursue this internship. My suggestion would be to not work at the Fort Lee branch if you want to conserve the cash.
- Manager can be very rude and often yells to all employees. Can be intimidating, and stressful.

Advice to Management

Pay for the parking. Also, create a career path for all interns that gives them a more direct track into becoming an employee with Scottrade. It would enhance the overall intern experience and make a much more valuable learning experience.

    Pros

    Excellent atmosphere and work environment, fair and transparent workplace, growing business with opportunity for full-time employment and advancement. Overall, I would recommend Scottrade to anyone interested in Investments, Brokerages, or the Finance Industry.

    Cons

    Can be a lack of challenges in the workplace. Limited competition and incentive to attain business compared to most brokerages. At times the working day can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Increase employee incentive to gain business.

    Pros

    Camaraderie developed amongst employees
    Hands- on experience (i.e. one on one client interactions)
    Continuous opportunities to learn and develop skills

    Cons

    Lunch breaks are very minimal and limited. Often employees must take lunch at their desk and set it aside when dealing with clients. So essentially there are no breaks. Unless you clock out for 30 mins.

    Advice to Management

    Riney is doing an excellent job thus far as a leader. If any advice is to be given it is for individual departments be readily more available to branches.
