    Pros

    The pay was ok I guess.

    Pros

    Make contacts and move on. Opportunity to get promoted ONLY if you are in the right circles.

    Cons

    TD has changed a lot in the past few years, the company has lost respect for employees and and management only sees headcount. 401k matching comes and goes.
    Too many inexperienced individuals in management positions. No clear vision or future plans shared with teammembers.

    Advice to Management

    Do some work and listen to your people.

    Pros

    The sales leaders and teams were great, and treated like stars. The company seems to be ran by its sales personnel. Lots of give aways and soft incentives for sales.

    Cons

    Finance department culture is not so good. The financial execs will just outright ignore anybody who is not management or higher. Blame shifting happens a lot, lots of finger pointing, a lot of 'that's not my job", and very little collaboration.
    I would never go back to this place or recommend that anyone go job n this company, unless you are desperate for work.

    Advice to Management

    When you first approach a small group of employees talking, and one of them is a new member on your team, instead of placing your back against him and backing up to give him the hint to walk away, try welcoming him to your company and at least act interested that he will be contributing to your team. Totally happened on week one, what a jerk!

    Pros

    centrally located, lots of young people working there. some fun activities. Most co-workers are cool. sorry but that is all the PROs I can think of but I must put in at least 20 words.

    Cons

    You have to watch your back there. HR and management are always looking for excuses to get rid of people. The turn over ratio at that place is UNBELIEVABLE. SSR-Sales Support Reps are hired by the hundreds yearly because the job sucks, is stressful and pay is rediculous. A lot of people are treated unfairly and management/HR will not back you. The company is Unethical in the ways they handle employees except for the executives of course. The executives are allowed to do unethical things without consequences. Even their CEO is under investigation for unethical behavior. It's just a GOOD OL BOY club there between HR and upper management. Does anyone really want to deal with kind of treatment? The pay there is average at best anyway. I would avoid this shady company.

    Advice to Management

    remember that you and HR put your pants on the same way as your employees, all your money doesn't make you any better. Read your own Ethics training guides before you start pushing out to your employees!!

    Pros

    Lots of little giveaways and sales incentives for the sales team. large sales team lots of different managers

    Cons

    you're just a number. they have a very high turnover for a reason. i was offered two inside sales rep positions and turned them down in favor of trying to get into a marketing position, and they did everything they could to prevent it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating everyone like a replaceable low level order taker. Actually train the employees when they start.
