Current Employee - Investment Consultant

I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of leads from corporate, existing clients and walk-ins. Nice office environment, great benefits, no nights or weekends expected or required to get job done.

Cons

Never build your own book. No trailing comp. No real client relationships. Clients often ask for stock picks or other advice that you cannot give.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand product offering and role of IC. Create career path, not just a 2-3 year job.

    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people in the rank and file

    Cons

    This is a boring place to work. Creative and innovative thoughts are thwarted at best, punished at worst. Upper management is quite content to cut positions, under the guise of lean, lower benefits and anything else it takes to line their own pockets. Their salary structure is mediocre, raises are pitiful and there is little to provide you with initiative to do anything more than show up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother? They have no interest in hearing anything.
