Disapproves of CEO

I worked at E*TRADE Financial (More than a year)

Pros

Salary is competitive, good benefits package

Cons

With the new CEO, the company is in a huge state of flux. Multiple top level executives were given their walking papers and serious reorg is in the works. They are still digging themselves out of a huge sinkhole due to the loan crisis and are expected to cut 100 million dollars in expenses this year.

Advice to Management

GET IT TOGETHER or SELL

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Etrade will train you to get your Series 7 brokers license. If you are not opposed to moving around there is some ooportunity for advancement. The company is small and earning potential is limited. It is good company to get some experience and go somewhere else to use it.

    Cons

    No real up earning potential because of company size and corporate structure. Company is top heavy with management and is not taken seriously by serious investors. You always get the feeling the company is about to sold or is on the market for a buyer.

    Advice to Management

    Make up you mind what you want to be, either an investment firm providing solid investment advice or a cheap gimmicky discount broker.
