vice presient

Vice President (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 10 years

Prosi thought it was fun to be in the financial services industry particularly with a company which valued cutting edge technology to deliver innovative products and services. and who doesn't love the ETRADE baby?

Conscorporate politics. I'm sure politics play a role at the top of all major companies but it gets even worse when top management is in fear for their job. the 2012 exercise with a management consultancy caused many headaches.

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on employee morale!
