    I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The paid training period is amazing. They’re training me for SIE and Series 7 certification, which will open a lot of doors for me. Sounds like the company promotes from within and has a good culture. So far, very positive experience.

    Cons

    With upcoming Schwab merger, there is some uncertainty about the future.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at TD Ameritrade full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very informative internship but the intern is limited in his/her abilities (mostly administrative work). I'd recommend utilizing the free investment learning tools provided through TD Ameritrade's website if you are interested in becoming a financial advisor (or utilize other resources to learn more about the industry)

    Cons

    No cons. I loved the three financial advisors I worked under & the clients were very friendly and nice to talk to.
