    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    (1) E*TRADE Pro is a good application with a lot of usable functionality. (2) Equity Edge appears to be a good application. The reason why I say that is because I'm only familiar with the functionality not the reporting capabilities. Tax reporting is essential due to the nuances of stock plan compensation. Assuming that the reporting is there (and I think it is) then it is a good application with a lot of usable functionality. (3) The Mutual Fund All-Star List published on Etrade.com has a lot of good funds on it. There is a wide selection of classes, sectors, and geographies. Bottom-line, the funds on that list are good performers over time.

    Cons

    (1) The job description does not accurately depict the actual daily tasks and how those tasks are measured. The compensation is unnecessarily complex and can change mid-year which seems like a odd business to me. (2) Life at the retail branches is disconnected from the online experience. The facilities are dated based on 1970's layouts so an infusion of capital improvement needs to happen as soon as possible. (3) The managed account offerings (MIP & UMA) are substandard. One would expect ~7% average annual rate of returns but the actual is ~5%. My educated guess is because the funds used are A-shares not institutional class.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be the next Amazon, Facebook, Schwab, Fidelity, etc. and just focus on being the best E*TRADE. Also, if you want to hire advisors with an existing book of business, then advertise it that way because otherwise it's misleading. I'm an optimist so I hope things turn around but unfortunately I cannot recommend working for E*TRADE at this point in time.
