    Some teams are very effective and get a lot done. Industry best practices are very team dependent. Decent vacation policy. Average pay

    Some teams are very inefficient. No big picture vision. People work in their own silos

    Pros

    I got some great technical experience working here. I also worked with a lot of great people in the teams I was working on. I loved my manager and co-workers.

    Cons

    The upper management from VP down to director level spends a lot of time be-belittling employees. I have witnessed upper management shouting insults at each other and their subordinates smacking their hands on tables to get attention. The environment had a lot of fear and people tended to work in silos to protect themselves. There were missed opportunities to solve some big problems because people were spending too much time and energy protecting themselves instead of working together. This was by far the most toxic work environment I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    People tend work better when they are encouraged.

    Pros

    It was my first job at E*TRADE and I learnt a lot, given that I was new to the industry.
    Get to know how brokerage and stock plan works. Good team and team-mates to work with.
    Good bonus if you work hard and stand out from others.

    Cons

    Long working hours.
    Strict time-off policies.
    Less pay/perks.

  9. I am not sure if I should write review because my experiences could likely be quite unique and not necessarily helpful.

    Pros

    Good health care benefits. Considering the long commute, I get to work from home once in a while. Overall, all I can say is, It could be worse here or elsewhere. May be it's just me.

    Cons

    Long commute. Almost complete disregard for work transparency. Was accused of sexual harassment falsely. Was not given adequate opportunities. But my experiences may not be representative of the larger set of employees.
