Great entry level job
Investment Consultant (Current Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 18, 2014
Handling walkin's and also manning the phones for inbound and outbound. I have learned a great deal about the industry, and gained a lot of knowledge throughout my time. There is not much room for advancement and the base salaries compared to our industry standard is below average.

The best part about my job is being able to help our clients understand – more... what is going with their account and being able to help them save on fee's. – less

Great for entry level
Financial Service Representative (Current Employee), Westminster, COJuly 26, 2014
Pros: great learning experience
Cons: low pay
If this is your first job this is a great opportunity. They really help you learn if you are new to the industry. The pay is on the low end and there doesn't seem to be much room to move up if you work in the call center.

Enjoyable co-workers with a concrete schedule
Intern (Former Employee), Roanoke, VAJune 20, 2014
Office is small with three employees. Days were slow and this prompted bad management practices (spending company time viewing social media and YouTube videos). The hardest part of the position was dealing with the occasional unruly client. The most enjoyable aspect was the office environment.

Good work/life balance
Investment Consultant (Former Employee), Paramus, NJJune 19, 2014
Pros: close to home if you work at a local branch. rarely worked overtime, but if you did would get paid for the time worked.
Cons: low pay, sales focused
A typical day would be to start with backoffice responsibilities such as working margin calls, long/short reports and processing paperwork. Throughout the day, you would have to help clients that come into the office with opening accounts, investment education, answering various questions on investing, placing trades and gathering assets. Whatever free – more... time we have in between was spent making call to clients about various campaigns and to gathering further information on the clients. – less

Great Work/Life Balance
Investment Consultant (Current Employee), ILMarch 27, 2014
Pros: great benefits, people you work with, work/life balance.
Cons: very stressful at different times of the year, most opportunities for advancement in st. louis
Normal day is spent getting to know the needs of clients to help them find the products or services they need to achieve their financial goals. Great place for growth, however, most opportunity for advancement is in St. Louis. People you work with are always willing to help. Lots of training is provided and benefits are great also.

Pros: flexible, allows the time for school, great opportunity to learn the basics of the financial industry
Cons: pay, limited amt of hours available to interns, not much opportunity for advancement beyound branch manager - unless you relocate to st. louis
High in customer service. When I left, the company was moving further into sales. Scottrade was an great co to work for, however, turnover is very high at this point. Many of the employees are not ready or equiped for the major changes that are happening. They seem to be phasing out interns.

Retail Bank Strategy Project Analyst (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOMarch 12, 2014
Company is a great company to work for, but the original family-like culture is becoming much more political and like a true corporate environment. The pay doesn't seem to be as competitive as other places, but the benefits are great.
