Pros

Good benefits and the vacation request process is easy to manage. Casual work environment. Expect to wear slacks and shirts. E*TRADE will train & pay for your Series 7 & 63. Good place to learn call-center experiences, brokerage industry experiences, stock-plan, retirements accounts. 6 months to apply for promotion.

Cons

Expect to work with non-traditional hours when you first start. Sat & Sun can be your workday. Your manager, depending on who, can be a micromanager. The company will expect you to "sale" leads to Financial Consultants, or Active Trader Consultants, but reward you very little in compensation. Along with compensation, it should be higher. E*TRADE will expect you to do a lot.

Advice to Management

Compensate associates more for the works they do.

    Pros

    Exciting, dynamic, and challenging place to work. Worked with a lot of smart, intelligent, motivated people. You will be rewarded when taking on additional responsibilities while continuing to perform at a high level.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a bit difficult at times. I definitely felt that people who knew how to play the game, but were by no means all-stars, were unfairly rewarded and promoted over smarter, harder working, higher performing employees who were less socially savvy.

    Pros

    The life-work balance is great. Everyone is focused on business while in the office then go home.

    Cons

    Financial services in general isn't a growth industry at the moment so opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks with current technology and embrace ideas that may not yield big ROI in the near term but can differentiate us from the competition going forward.
