    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, and depending on your team, the opportunity to work on good, visible projects.

    Cons

    Constantly changing. They had more than 6 CEO's and numerous changes in their "vision" and management. If you can't weather the storm and you're not aligned with the right people, your screwed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together. E*TRADE has the roots to make a great company but the revolving door of CEO's and upper management are the company's own enemy.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunites for growth at Etrade, and the management is great for helping their employees succeed. Promotions are based on performance, not tenure which I really like.

    Cons

    401k does not match very much. Health insurance is okay but not the best. Company is not as big as others, so growth is slower than other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at Etrade is great and very helpful. If you are a good employee, they will help you succeed.

    Pros

    The people are passionate, close knit, and have an immense sense of ownership. The immediate management listens well to the employees.

    Cons

    growth ads bureaucracy. This isn't a fault of the company per say but the reality of SOX. Also due to size, innovation has suffered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication with the employee base. Take risks with development, not with revenue. shut up and listen to the middle and lower tiers.

    Former Employee - Senior Security Engineer in Alpharetta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Security Engineer in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial

    Pros

    - Great teamwork within the group.
    - Excellent manager who watches out for his employees.
    - Interesting technology and projects.
    - Great sense of pride in work.
    - Great benefits and opportunity to grow your career.
    - Rewards are available for those who work hard and earn it.

    Cons

    - The position is not your typical Security Engineering role. More like Security Tools. Not network heavy like most Security Engineering teams.
    - Upper level management throws projects around or stalls/squashes projects randomly
    - Lots of politics on larger "Charged" projects that lead to dead-ends or delay/partial implementation.
    - No long term security vision from upper management. More plugging the gaps to cover.
    - No backup engineer for your projects. That means there is no on-call schedule, you are on-call for your stuff always. *I mention this as a con because it's not the norm. I personally like this better than on-call schedules and instills a sense of "eating your own dog food"
    - Management commonly give Production and development much higher priority than Security. Consistently feel like you there because they could not get rid of you (like life insurance. No one want's to pay it, but they do)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Develop a long term plan for Security at E*TRADE.
    - Place a higher emphasis on Security with projects and peers.
    - Highlight the great benefits E*TRADE has. Many employees do not realize how good they are.
