    I worked at TD Ameritrade as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you are working in Business Intelligence or Strategy, Planning & Analytics, you will be thrown right into the mix with the whole business unit. By the end of your summer, you will have learned a working proficiency in some of the most important data analytics softwares, which are extremely valuable to throw on your resume as a Senior in college.

    Cons

    There are generally more things that need to be done than actual employees to get the jobs done. Thus, you will find yourself dabbling in different business functions and doing other people's work many times.

    Hire management in all locations rather than focusing on senior leadership in Jersey City only.

    I have been working at TD Ameritrade

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Modern facilities and technology. Casual attire.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Goals keep getting raised. People quitting without jobs lined up because they hate it so much. Clueless, idle managers thanking their lucky stars that aren't the poor saps that have to deal with non-stop calls from usually arogant and often ignorant clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the insane focus on sales stats and productivity so that the workplace isn't a living hell for the phone reps.
