Things may have changed since I worked there
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, NEJuly 15, 2018
Every team and every department took on the personality of its management. Some good, some not so good. Management did not take a leadership role in mentoring junior associates to see that they're getting trained up, getting them into classes, or encouraging them to advance their careers through outside learning (Community Colleges, Accelerated Degrees, Certifications, etc.
The IT budget for such outside learning was huge but not being utilized because half the associates didn't know about it and the management didn't know or didn't encourage anyone to use it.
Most co-workers were nice enough and everyone seemed to work with the customer needs as the end goal but lower management often lost site if that.
Pros
Great facilities
Cons
Call Center can be a bit cut-throat

A company in transition.
Senior Investment Consultant (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 12, 2018
The company is a bit lost in the woods. Clearly behind other better competitors. Company doesn't place a lot of focus on developing talent and increasing industry knowledge. They talk a lot about things, but little action is implemented so prepare yourself to get better on your own.

Very professional and satisying
Investent Services (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 28, 2018
A typical day at work would be to take inbound calls to help investors with a transaction.

I learned a lot about the stock market.

Management was hands on and very proactive.

The workplace culture helped you feel you belonged to a productive team.

The hardest part of the job is learning complicated stock strategies.

The most enjoyable part of the job is helping customers make money.
Pros
Professional environment
Cons
hard to get licensing

Best Company to retire
Technology Lead and Architect (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJJune 26, 2018
No lay offs or firing in this company is the biggest advantage.
Quarterly bonus is the best thing this company provide. Work life balance is overall good except for few projects.

TD Ameritrade
Licensed broker 7, 63 (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJune 19, 2018
TD Ameritrade had a comfortable working environment, excellent facilities, good benefits and excellent training programs. It unfortunately is an online brokerage company which means your job as a broker is living your life in a call center taking call after call. Not something I am willing to do anymore. Otherwise an excellent company to work for.
Pros
Excellent facilities, good work environment.
Cons
short breaks, every second monitored, avg. pay, call center job

Employee Centered
Relationship Manager (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 6, 2018
It is a call center environment so a typical day consists of checking some emails in the morning then jumping on the phones.

I have learned a lot about how the financial industry works and how financial advisors use firms like TD Ameritrade to help them keep their advisement firms running smoothly.

Management is pretty hands off for the most part, they help with escalations and trickier questions.

I enjoy the hours of my job and the ability to move to a bunch of different positions within the company.
Pros
clear career ladder, good benefits
Cons
huge company, doesn't really feel like a team

Customer Service (Current Employee) –  TexasMay 31, 2018
TD Ameritrade is a fast past environment, with room for growth if you can play the political game . The truth is you must be able to keep up and be able to multi task.
