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.
