Great company that genuinely cares about its Associates and Clients
Director (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 1, 2017
TDA is a great place to work for those that thrive on change and are committed to taking care of others. They consistently do the right things for the right reasons, not just to comply with regulations. They have incredible talent across the leadership, management and associate levels of the organization.
Pros
The talent, culture and benefits package
Cons
The pace is relentless and can lead to burn out

Not a very good company to work for if you are looking for progression within the company.
IT Employee (Current Employee) –  OfficesNovember 17, 2016
Working for TD Ameritrade is a great opportunity to learn. Your co-workers are really great to work with.
Their management has a high turnover, which leads to poor management. It doesn't seem that management is willing to "go to bat" for their employees.
There is very slim opportunity for growth and only seems to be in their main offices.
The benefits are about average
Pros
Opportunity to learn
Cons
No room for progression, not recognized for your accomplishments, expected to be available to work 24/7/365 so it's hard on a personal life

SENIOR DATA ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJNovember 28, 2016
Great company and culture, its hard to move up in this company and salary isn't as competitive compared to other opportunities around the area. Great work life balance, but if you don't fight for more opportunities/responsibilities, you can end up plateauing.

Horrible place to work
Operations Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEOctober 21, 2016
Terrible place to work. Management is corrupt and the only people that get decent raises are people higher up the chain. Company also only cares about clients that bring in a lot of money and doesn't care about clients that don't bring in that much money. Very corporate.
Pros
Get to wear jeans
Cons
Terrbile raises

Senior Associate - Premier Services (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJSeptember 21, 2016
A conservative organization with multiple offices but pay is modest and advancement is limited.
The culture is midwestern and it will not stand for brazen behavior from its cosmopolitan offices.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
not much job security

Love the company
TD Ameritraade Jersey City, NJ
Great people, young culture. Do what they can to help you grow as much as possible. Open door policy with management, I feel very comfortable if I need to speak with someone in upper management. The work is a grind and very hard, but if you are a hard worker and detailed oriented you should be fine.

Waste of time in a technological world
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJNovember 20, 2016
Terrible place to work and no chances of growth. Management is horrible, 0 motivation and too much waste of a time talking unncessarily and discussing to solve and at the end no plan of action. you would go in as a sharp knife and walkout as a rusted dull useless knife. its a great place to unlearn everything you know. People who manage you have no idea what they are doing or what they suppose to do.

Branch Sales Internship (Former Employee) –  Short Hills, NJJanuary 2, 2017
typical day included front desk work where I worked directly with clients. Talk to clients and learn the ins and outs of the business. Management was great and very helpful along with my co workers. Hardest part was the commute while the most enjoyable was the client friendly atmosphere.
