    Company closing its National Branch presence in SLC

    Advice to Management

    Think bigger picture - SLC is a highly educated area and TD doesnt have a facility in mountain Time zone - for contingency purposes.

    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary provides some security. Good place to sharpen sales skills and gain investment knowledge. Seem to have clients best interest in mind and strive to provide positive experience.

    Cons

    Daily huddles to discuss previous days activities is emotionally taxing. Led by branch manager and being recorded so they feel more like an act than constructive. Scrutiny of sales is over the top by the Incentive Sales Review Monitoring group, whose purpose is to find ways to withhold compensation. Continuous turnover due to the extreme micromanagement and increasing sales targets while payouts remain constant or drop. Inability to provide solutions to clients other than proprietary managed accounts or outside money managers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly, consistently, and with respect. Sales force should be valued and not like entry level telemarketers.
