    I have been working at TD full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    TD provides the right resources and tools to enable you succeed, and it's easy to get promoted internally if you meet your goals and also heavily involved in social/company events .

    Cons

    Underpays compared to the other big banks. Customer survey calls gets in the way of receiving more cash bonuses for bank stores, which affects total compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Management is far removed from what happens at retail store level. They should get more involved.

    I have been working at TD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Staffs are overall young and energetic, they could move up faster than other banks, managers overall helpful and supportive. I was told it has the best sales culture among other banks.

    Cons

    Crazy banking hours and poor work life balance scheduling, for people who has family, this isn't the right job for you. Most successful staffs are single or has no kids. Too much sales pressure compare to years ago, and the LEI (customer experience index) isn't daily representing staff's service, it's random and by luck... but it did affect most of your bonus.

    Advice to Management

    TD can not keep good people in the retail due to their poor working schedules and hours

    "Just enough, but not actually good"

    Pros

    -Coworkers are generally young (same as me) and pretty friendly
    -If you perform and have good managers you can pretty much do your own thing
    -Benefits are decent (3 weeks vacation, stock purchase plan, free banking, etc.)
    -Decent rate of advancement due to large number of branches/positions

    Cons

    TD is best described as a weird purgatory: if you perform well, the bank will often give you just enough to stay but it is never quite good enough (in terms of compensation). You may work in a role for about a year and they will give you some small pay adjustments and when you are thinking of leaving, they'll offer you a promotion with small pay increase. Eventually you will go through a few layers of positions and be underpaid compared to external hires or if you went to another financial institution. Sales targets are always being increased and non-performers are 'coached out' of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on providing value for customers and less on raw sales numbers. Building relationships with customers will lead to them giving the bank business on their own. Trying to force a different metric depending on the quarter/campaigns is not the right way to provide value to customers. Also compensate workers better than annual raises that are less than inflation.

    I worked at TD part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedule. easy to work when in school. open late to accommodate

    Cons

    managers seem to not care to much about employees over all well being.
    there is tons of sales pressure, and extensive intense coaching to force more
    unnatural sales of tying people to more debt. (its a bank)

    Advice to Management

    listen to staff more and stop forcing interactions.
