    Pros

    Amazing Culture. Fun and Midwesty. When executed properly Lean makes Associates feel vested, engaged, and part of the solution. Great place to spend 8 hours a day.

    Cons

    Flat organization. Too much revenue derived from trading and that revenue is being slashed due to commission wars. Lean when not executed properly can feel like micro managing.

    Advice to Management

    Let's use our spunk to be cutting edge rather than stay status quo.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for those newer to the industry. Significant upside in compensation. Great training and coaching with room to grow.

    Company is in a transition period and lacks clear direction. Many people fail at this job as it is mostly a high activity sales role.

    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.

    Pros

    - Great opportunities for advancement.
    - Fantastic culture and core values.
    - Community Involvement is encouraged.
    - Fantastic amenities and facilities.
    - Flexible Schedules.
    - Really great outlook!

    Cons

    - As the company has gotten larger and more successful, some policies and procedures can feel a bit bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    - Reduce the number of in-flight projects and focus the organization on only those that will help us achieve the most impact. Focus more on the outcomes than the output.
    - Continue to flatten the organization by decentralizing decision making. Let the teams closest to the work make decisions and only centralize those that have strategic or enterprise impacts.
