    Pros

    TD Ameritrade offers a great work/life balance along with supportive leadership. The firm also offers many opportunities for professional growth and multiple resources for additional training.

    Cons

    The firm was acquired by Charles Schwab. The hope is that Charles Schwab shares the same work/life balance along with company culture.

    Pros

    Used to be a lot of development time and work life balance used to not be hectic. You get a lot of hands on time with clients to better learn the industry.

    Cons

    Margin for errors are low, customer is always right even when they’re not. Break structure provides little breathing room. Business hires temps to transfer to us quite a bit and it doesn’t help, The platform would run into issues quite a bit

    Terrible Work Environment With Too Many Office Politics

    Jun 27, 2012 - Anonymous Employee

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Most co-workers are okay to work with -Benefits aren't too bad -Can get your Series 7 & 63

    Cons

    -Politics, it's not who is the best person for the job that gets hired for promotions... it's the person who can brown nose their way into the position that gets it. -Leadership team, especially the Senior Management Team. This goes back to the office politics, Senior Managers are individuals who don't act out of integrity and do what is right for their associates. They have set unrealistic performance expectations and continue to make them even more unrealistic and keep raising them. Why doesn't Senior Management get on the phones to do our job before they start telling us what our metrics should really look like? Yes, most were on the phones at one point, but that was over 5+ years ago and the business has changed since then and calls have gotten longer and expectations have grown exponentially higher - Two faced executive leaders, you have many executive leaders in the Company who will be nice to your face but talk about you behind your back with others and then be able to let them go the very next day. - Food vendor is terrible, they serve off the wall food. What ever happened to regular food? - Communication, they say they have an open door policy, but what they really mean is don't really take advantage of this 'so called' option because it will be a career limiting move if heaven for bid you bring up a known problem that needs to be addressed when no one else is willing to do it because they are so scared of what it will do to their career. -Have to walk on egg shells. They have created a culture there now that doesn't allow you to really speak up and share things that will help grow the business or make things better because if you do you may be viewed as lashing out and receive formal coaching. You always have to be careful of what you say and to who. -Insufficient training, they expect you to know everything but don't commit the time or energy into ongoing training once you're hired -Leadership team is like the 'good old boys club' and have Manager's, Senior Manager's and Directors who are very clicky when you go to off site events, it's very difficult to enter into their 'circle of friends' and is almost like being in High School again with how they treat new people, they are often times not the most inviting and not approachable. -Work/life balance is very bad if you are interested in trying to grow your career and advance. If you have children, forget about trying to advance in the Company because in order to advance and get promotions you have to 'Network' and it's always the people who can do this in the evening/weekends at offsite events that get the promotions which is not fair to those with families.
