    Pros

    Great pay, benefits from day one, paternity leave, 401k matching, referral bonus, yearly bonus, lots of overtime opportunities

    Cons

    Can be high stress, especially during tax season. Can be a challenge to get your sales goals, some customers are jerks.

    Advice to Management

    Etrade has given me an opportunity to enter the industry, and has treated me right. I thank you for this opportunity.

    Pros

    Great if you are not licensed. You will learn a lot in the job. There are many different opportunities and you move up fast.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on selling. Call center environment can be daunting. Not enough breaks or flexibility with schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Change the job from all phone calls to a mix.

    Pros

    You learn a lot, and everyone is helpful. The salary isn't bad, nor is the bonuses. The benefits are the best that I have personally ever had. Overall great company to work for, the company actually cares about its employees!!

    Cons

    None at the moment. Most of the things at Etrade are nice. Although there was a better way on how they rotate the hours on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment. Management for the most part are nice. When we do well we definitely get rewarded with paid lunches and shout outs! Definitely keeps the moral up throughout the office which is great!
