      Gain Industry Knowledge

      Pros

      You get the opportunity to gain lots of industry knowledge, even without previous experience. They pay for your licensing and have a great training program to get you up to speed. TD Ameritrade has an amazing culture and I feel like I can go to my manager for anything.

      Cons

      Call center type job, so this may be a negative for some. Pay could be a little better. Lots of clients are older. So when they call in with tech issues, it is sometimes almost impossible to help them because they can barely use a computer. Let alone, clear cookies, get a text message, etc.

      Pros

      TD Ameritrade offers a great work/life balance along with supportive leadership. The firm also offers many opportunities for professional growth and multiple resources for additional training.

      Cons

      The firm was acquired by Charles Schwab. The hope is that Charles Schwab shares the same work/life balance along with company culture.

      I left when TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab were not yet merged, so I don't know how the company is now.

      Pros

      TD Ameritrade seems to genuinely care about their employees. The pay is decent and the benefits are excellent.

      Cons

      It seemed as though we were working towards something bigger and better, but in the long run I was just a call center representative. This isn’t a bad thing for most people, I just have a hard time sitting at a desk for long periods of time.

      High Pressure Sales

      May 22, 2021 - Investment Consultant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      TD Ameritrade offers a lot of training and support to be successful in a financial sales environment. It is a large company that provides great pay, has excellent benefits and values work/life balance.

      Cons

      I came to TD Ameritrade due to the acquisition of Scottrade. From an employee standpoint, Scottrade was the better company and valued their employees in a way TDA didn't. While TDA gives employees the tools to be successful, that success is contingent on a lot of factors that might not make it possible. On the surface, TDA comes across as a company that focuses on providing a service that is looking out for the client. In reality, Investment Consultants experienced high pressure to meet mostly out-of-reach sales targets that were the same no matter what geographic region you were in. This pressure caused Investment Consultants to hammer managed accounts to almost every client whether it was appropriate or not because TDA was trying hard to transition away from trading as its main revenue source. Since TDA is a firm the vast majority of clients come to for self-directed trading, the managed account sell can be a hard one. The transition from Scottrade was rocky and you consistently felt as if the "purple" side was never fully welcomed into the fold. I think Schwab is a premier organization on all fronts and now that TDA is becoming Charles Schwab, the outlook is much brighter.
