    Pros

    i 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?

    Cons

    corporate 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 Management

    focus on employee morale!

    Pros

    It is a great environment for self motivated people. Management is open to creative solutions and supportive of projects. Compensation has been good, but upward mobility has been difficult.

    Cons

    The company is understaffed, which means long hours for those that work there.
