Financial Services Representative (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJune 28, 2017
Worked weekends and Monday 3-12 hour shifts, started as a seasonal then got licensed, great licensing program, decent pay for Texas. They try to always show that they care, they mostly do,but they also put on that image because they pay less than the competitors. Great place to start if you are willing to answer around 50 calls a day and hit sales goals every quarter.
Pros
Great company culture.
Cons
If you answer phones all day, dealing with arrogant people can be a pain...

Good place to start with advancement opportunities
Financial Services (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 27, 2017
TD Ameritrade is large company with opportunities for advancement. Most positions you will start in will be taking incoming calls. A lot of new systems and regulations to learn in a short time. Will have to pass Series 7, 63,66 or 24 for most positions.
Pros
Cafeteria, Compensated for sales
Cons
Short Breaks, Must follow schedule they set for you, Not a lot of break between phone calls

Pros
Paid for Back Rubs during tax season
Cons
A lot of time on the phones

Fun place to work
Private Client Senior Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJune 20, 2017
TD Ameritrade is definitely a great place to start working and even to build a career.

The culture is really accepting and friendly. They do care about their employees although compensation should be more competitive.

I have enjoyed working there but seems like even though they like hiring from within, roles are very limited as you climb the ladder.

If you are interested in management they do encourage you and help you get there.

Great Company - cares about their employees
Senior Financial Consultant (Current Employee) –  North Bethesda, MDJune 20, 2017
work day starts with a morning huddle, then review the days calendar to plan accordingly for meetings, call blocks and administrative work.

flexible with hours if you need to go to the doctor or other errands that have to be done during the week.

there is a one week intensive training to teach professional sales skills.
hardest part of the job is staying focused when management is trying to pull you in 5 different directions.
most enjoyable part of the job are team outings and lunches.
Pros
free lunches

Growing organization but too focuses on sales
Financial Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 18, 2017
The organization is growing quickly which creates opportunities however the firm is very clearly more focuses on selling than on helping clients. The idea is that there is flexibility in my position ads far as schedule but the push is for longer hours.
Pros
Flex schedule
Cons
more focus on sales than helping clients

Broker and Trader (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJune 16, 2017
Relaxed atmosphere with good pay, the training was monotonous and they treated you like a child but once you started working it was fine. The job was too repetitive for me.

It actually is a productive and fun workplace with a ping-pong table.
Consultant, Production Support (Tier 3) (Current Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIJune 15, 2017
Enjoy a fast paced atmosphere in which you are driven not only by managers, but by a personal desire to see what great things you can accomplish.

The teams are very open to each other, and focused on doing what it takes to proved an excellent client experience.

After a hard day (or in the middle of a hard day) enjoy ping pong, Foosball, a game on the x-box or PlayStation, or some challenging Yoga and calisthenics.
Pros
Frequent free lunches
Cons
The work has moments of high stress (but that's what happy hour is for)

Multiple Positions (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMay 29, 2017
Good company to work for, but was more employee focused in the past. There are a lot of different career opportunities across the business. There is a growing expectation to do more with less.

Investor Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMay 13, 2017
Awesome employer! Young, fun environment and always having activities to spice things up. ALWAYS feeding you free food. Very easy to promote from within, almost everyone starts in the same entry level position and moves out of it within a year.

Becoming Corporate
Director (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEMay 4, 2017
When the company was small, it was fun and exciting, the culture was great. It grew both organically as well as through mergers and acquisition. It all changed with the Canadian invasion, a large percentage of the upper leadership are Canadian and the TD values have made Ameritrade and extremely liberal and corporate environment.

Quality review.
Retirement Plan Administrator (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 2, 2017
Quality of work from associates was not a priority. Quantity/metrics carried higher value over quality delivery of service to RIA's. HR receives very low marks in terms of professionalism.
Pros
low cost brokerage fees
Cons
lack of concern with quality delivery to RIA's (Registered Investment Advisors)
