Etrade is the best brokerage job to get started in the industry.

Stock Plans Representative (Former Employee)
Sandy, UT

ProsEtrade is a great place if you like to just show up and do your job and not get hassled by your boss. People that are senior to you are excellent and actually care about their employees. As long as you do what you are supposed to then they stay out of your business completely.

ConsThere is basically nowhere to go as far as advancement goes. You start there making 40K and you could work there for 25 years and make 45 or 55K max. It's a GREAT job for a student or someone that is just breaking in the industry. Just don't go in there with the idea that you are going to grab the world by the tail because Etrade is not the place to accomplish that.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, management is very fair. My boss was a "no bs" type of guy but he was great at giving all of his employees plenty of space. All the other managers are similar.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I recommend their services, but not employment.

    Senior Financial Services Associate (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial


    Pros: It's a good business model (mortgage issues aside) and has great products and services. The website and cash management… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Your employees are your best asset. Treat them with respect. Retain the successful leaders,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
