    Pros

    A secure career in a company that values mediocrity. Don't make waves, or think outside the box to solve problems and you'll do fine here. TD is respectful of work life balance.

    Cons

    Management is looking for an echo chamber of agreement. If you're doing a skill set of work it's difficult to be reviewed for other opportunities that arise within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire chess players when all you're looking for is pawns.

    Fast growing industry and TD is the leading brokerage firm
    continual growth
    Everyone is very understanding of your problems and tries to help

    Cons

    The training program could use work, everything seems out of place and there were a bunch of issues with the programs and log in. Understandable since they are in the middle of an acquisition and hiring like crazy right now so it's a little hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
