Pros

At E*TRADE, almost anyone can have the opportunity to take the lead on an initiative, whether initiated by others or their own. You can quickly go up a learning curve and develop new skills. It's fairly easy to get a cross-functional education and transition to work in different roles and departments. You have the opportunity to work on industry-leading creative, innovative products and services.

Cons

Most of E*TRADE works at an extremely fast pace and can be a very chaotic environment that often leads to unecessary mistakes. Smoe may not appreciate the effect of this on the user experience. This can also lead to inconsistent rewards and recognition for employees, and can be too agressive a culture for some.

Advice to Management

Pay closer attention to and reward more fairly the many talented individual contributors who build and maintain the exceptional products and service

    Pros

    The size of the company means there's less overhead to be bogged down with. There is opportunity to get stuff done and work on interesting projects.

    Cons

    The atmosphere and morale is pretty low. People crowd around the TV showing CNBC whenever the stock takes a dive.

    Advice to Management

    Try to boost morale somehow at the company

    Pros

    Great flexibility with your schedule, several shifts are offered. The benifits this company offers are great, including 4 weeks of paid time off from day one which is much higher than the industry standard. The salary is not bad, but is is not enough to keep you from looking for another job.

    Cons

    the company is constantly being investigated for some sort of legal issue such as interpositioning in trades and things of that nature. Also they are starting to heavily rely upon call center reps based in the Philipines who don't know the first thing about the brokerage industry, or english for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Hire domestic workers!
