I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They pay for you to get your license, USED to be a good place to work, decent pay if you work your butt off (and I mean close to a thousand hours of OT and hit the top performance awards)

Cons

Treat people fairly- they like to pick favorites, There is no such thing as a "promotion" every job besides sales is a lateral move and if you start on any shift other than 1st you will be getting a pay decrease when you move. They have introduced LEAN in the last year, though do not know how to operate with it, they have made alot of the employees mad and lost alot of people

Advice to Management

Be there... It would be nice if you could ever find a manager when you needed one. Quit asking for more, and taking away the tools to get more. Also if your going to preach your values, live by them.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent Base Salary and potential for quarterly bonuses
    get a book of existing clients to call on

    Cons

    "churn and burn" - quick trigger-finger to fire Investment Consultants if they are unlucky enough to experience two consecutive quarters under sales targets.

    Advice to Management

    treat Investment Consultants with more respect, not just a liability on the balance sheet
