I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They'll pay for you to get your series 7, and 63, if that's of interest to you, but most places do, so meh.
Pay, and benefits used to be decent for the area. No idea where they are now.
Things were a lot better under the previous CEO.

Cons

If you're not a sycophant, and a suck-up, you're not going to go very far with the company.
Way to focused on sales, regardless of what team you're actually on.
Asinine metrics that impact your bonus, but are in some cases entirely out of your control.
The current CEO.

Advice to Management

Grow up? People are individuals, not "brands"? Does it even matter?

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good incentives if you are just an average employee but if you work hard you will get paid very well. The coaching is very effective and the people you work with are competent.

    Cons

    There isn't really a whole lot of down side but if you are not able to handle difficult situations or take rude people personally this may not be the job for you. If you don't meet your minimum expectations you will be managed out of your job. (deservedly so)

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and internal training. From the top down, the company lives up to their core values. People Matter, Clientcentric, Integrity First.

    Cons

    Hard to break into management - even with numerous awards and high performance. Not necessarily a 'good ol boy' network, but I would love to find the secret because it's a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Better pathways to advancement
