    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    E*TRADE Financial offers a high energy environment with lots of highly technical minds.
    Vacation policies are generous after you've put in your years.
    Excellent health benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by.
    Company direction is constantly in flux as Executive Management team has experienced high level of turnover.
    Significant raises can only be found with title changes and promotions; however, these raises are paltry in comparison to what can be obtained elsewhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the hard working individuals that have stood by the company over the many years of turmoil at E*TRADE Financial.

    There are many new processes that management should consider streamlining. Few opportunities for promotions
