I have been working at E*TRADE Financial

Pros

Great learning opportunity, great benefits package, awesome brokerage platform, good marketing by the company. ETRADE (Arlington) is also VERY involved in the community, e.g. homeless out-reach programs, elementary school visits, toys for tots around the holidays etc.

Cons

Senior management can be aloof and disinterested, instant messaging seems to be the only way to communicate with co-workers. Stock price cant seem to break the $2 mark. Nervous about the economy and if ETRADE will react accordingly. Lots of customer service are out-sourced to Manilla.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more time to learn about the "little people" that work under you, help us develop our career by introducing us to new tasks.

    Pros

    a great place to get experience, it forces you to adapt to changing situations

    Cons

    management was always reacting to problems (and badly) instead of anticipating them. Too many legacy systems, and too many changes, then unchanges

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ever, ever, let the ETBank people run the company again

    Pros

    It's a good business model (mortgage issues aside) and has great products and services. The website and cash management services are user-friendly and generally problem-free. The pace of development and technology make it an exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as disposable. There is no focus on health or wellness, and employees who ask for modified schedules to care for their family are frequently denied. The HR department serves only to police the employees and deliver bad news.

    The constantly revolving leadership team makes for frequent changes to priorities and goals.

    There are different standards for every department, with the "less valuable" areas receiving very little in the way of perks or moral boosters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your best asset. Treat them with respect. Retain the successful leaders, and eliminate those who get caught up in the power struggle and inter-departmental politics.
