    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time

    Pros

    TDA is a great company to work for and there are tons of opportunities in every area of the organization. You just have to be the kind of person that is going to work hard and make a difference every day. They treat their associates with integrity and respect, providing an environment to be successful.

    Cons

    As the company has grown change has slowed down and become more challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time to find ways to leverage top performers in the areas need and not losing them. This means looking outside of your immediate network and not just putting familiar faces in positions.
