    Continuous learning. No two days are alike. Help people/firms through a sometimes strenuous transitionary period. Travel is heavy.

    Travel is heavy. Can be difficult to juggle family, kids, and 80-90% travel.

    Pros

    Great culture and lots of room to advance. Management has been very supportive so far. I think this company will reward effort and attitude. Put in a solid effort, be a helpful, supportive team member and you will advance.

    Cons

    Not getting the shift I requested is a bit of a bummer but it won't be permanent. The compensation is on the lower end at the beginning but I feel like that will change.

    I worked at TD Ameritrade (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great name recognition and lots of advertising that generates lots of referrals for you to call every day.

    Cons

    You aren't allowed to recommend specific investments or give specific advice. You have to talk about general strategies, then hand off the client to somebody else who can recommend a specific investment. As an investment consultant, the company only wants you to gather outside assets. If you don't hit your quarterly goals, they put you on warning and manage you out the door. I saw so many people come and go in the years that I was there. No real job security, and little room for advancement at the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on your Human Resources! Good people are hard to find, and they won't stay if you don't show an interest in their development and future.

    Cons

    Need to upgrade and innovate the back office infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    Need to shake up tenured employees who’ve only known TDA to spark innovation.
