Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 11, 2013
I have worked at Scottrade for over 9 years. I started as an intern, trained to become a broker and was promoted to branch manager. I have learned a great deal through the training offered at Scottrade and it has prepared me well for my career.
The compensation is adaquate and expanding, but as a branch employee, advancement (without moving to St. Louis) stops once one becomes a branch manager.
Senior Data Scientist (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 8, 2016
The company reached its peak and now is declining. Management micromanages on daily basis. The company also doesn't respect contract. In offer letter, it offed a manager position. When I moved to St Louis, I found out that the position was an Analyst.

FINANCIAL OFFICE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 7, 2015
Great workplace environment and benefits. They really value the employees ideas and feedback. I also like that the company still values pay for performance; we have still managed to receive bonuses through out the economic downturn in the economy.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 16, 2015
Scottrade is a leader in on-line brokerage services. Of late, they have moved heavily into sales without much training of the long time employees. It was difficult to meet the minimum quotas put on each employee with the stipulations set forth. It truly became all about numbers with high minimums set. It was a pleasure to get to know and work with local clients. The office was staffed with 3 ladies that became very close over the years. Getting to know them and their families was a wonderful part of the job. Knowing we had each others back at work and outside of work was the greatest part of my job.

Intern (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 22, 2015
The people I work with are amazing, I consider them family. I am very comfortable around them and don't hesitate to ask them any questions. The hardest part of my job is interpreting some of the tax paperwork I receive through email since some of it is hand written. The most enjoyable part of my job is without a doubt the culture and environment I work in.
Scottrade provides for a good work life balance and a good living income. The culture is good and promotes teamwork. There is not much room outside of St. Louis for promotion beyond a Branch Manager. There is a lot of micromanagement and change that provides difficulty throughout the work day.
