    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started as an Inter and it was very challenging, after a few months I was already doing reports for seniors managers and meeting directly with the clients.

    Cons

    Its a small company, therefore, there is not much room to climb up in the company's structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus your eyes on the people, because they are who really makes the company succesful

    Pros

    High energy leadership team that isn't afraid to change things that need changing makes for great opportunities to make a real difference and advance in one's career. Mid-level leadership show true caring for their people.

    Cons

    The largest challenge is keeping up with the pace of work. With so much change for the better happening, the pace can be exhilarating or overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a solid plan for success in place. Do not be deterred by short-term challenges that might derail the company's transformation. Keep the faith and E*TRADE will be great again.
