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

Pros

regular 9-5 business hours, good work/life balance. The benefits are decent

Cons

Boring and it's in Jersey. Managers are really good and making themselves appear productive to directors and MD. Salary is definitely low for finance sector.

Advice to Management

Do some work and don't throw everything to the analysts. Listen to why your employees are leaving and look at where they are going, learn from that.

    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?
