    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Great platforms -Room to grow -nice company culture -Discounts & Benefits

    Cons

    -Office politics; no matter how much you outperform peers recognition is primarily based on how popular you are with the right people -Awards are discretionary now and not numbers based in an IS role. Allows more favoritism to take place. Have experienced outperforming peers numbers wise but not receiving recognition because of not being viewed as "talkative" enough. -Not very diverse company. Not a lot of... programs that encourage diversity and advancement of those consider as a "minority"
