Pros

Great opportunities to take on additional responsibilities and learn new functional areas. Prior to 2007 the firm was in many interesting markets outside of the US which provided dynamic roles in IT, Operations and Marketing.

Cons

Work life balance is difficult, and employees are often unrewarded for working 60 - 80 hour work weeks when there are challenging situations. Several departments have significantly lower workload than some key areas.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Beginners have tons of things to learn. Great technologies are available to explore. All open source at work. Its a great technology company.

    Cons

    The etrade has too many managers and there is no growth potential for this company in the current world. The middle layer of employees are struggling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many rules at work. Not a good idea to have a time based work enviornment at a software concern.

    Pros

    The people I worked with directly were great and care about the company.
    Communication is getting better.

    Cons

    Good old boys club
    Short sighted, need better balance between quarterly profits and long-term goals
    Poor management of employee satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just survey employees on satisfaction, hold management accountable for retention and satisfaction goals.
