    Pros

    High energy leadership team that isn't afraid to change things that need changing makes for great opportunities to make a real difference and advance in one's career. Mid-level leadership show true caring for their people.

    Cons

    The largest challenge is keeping up with the pace of work. With so much change for the better happening, the pace can be exhilarating or overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    There is a solid plan for success in place. Do not be deterred by short-term challenges that might derail the company's transformation. Keep the faith and E*TRADE will be great again.

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

    Pros

    As an entry level FSR (financial services rep.) you will learn and gain exposure to almost everything within the brokerage banking system. If you like overtime especially in the tax season it will be available. Excellent support and training.

    Cons

    You will be on the phone all the time, I'm not saying this is a con but there is no time for chit chat as there is almost always calls in the que. You will be micromanaged down to the minute including call time, breaks, lunch and almost everything you do. Again not necessarily a con just the way it is. If you are punctual and don't mind working for 8 hrs a day then you will do fine and will gain a lot of knowledge and experience.

    Pros

    Exciting and challenging projects underway to modernize the company. Leadership is supportive of ambition and knows they should think big.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are a lack of processes and also a lack of speed in modernization efforts. As a result, some change feels slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up on following through.
