I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Laid back and low pressure environment. Management very accommodating of adjusting work schedules and time off. Adjustable work schedules as long as you put in 8 hours and get work done. Pay is OK taking into consideration nature of work. Management really looks out for employees. Co-workers were all very friendly and approachable. Collegial work atmosphere among different departments.

Cons

Work can be routine and unexciting. Layoffs can be rampant especially in Operations. Can get stuck in mediocre position for long time with little pay increases and not much advancement opportunities due to business climates. Low turnover and staff cutbacks which reduces growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Reasonable hours, lack of any deadlines. New CEO is at least trying to break through the walls that protect those who refuse to embrace change and prevent innovation.

    Cons

    Entire senior management group has left (note this could be seen as a pro, but it remains to be seen.) Remaining managers have dug in like the battle of the Somme. Very little chance to grow or learn new technologies. Most good employees have left and those that remain are shell-shocked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on pushing change. It may have to go all the way to the lowest levels of management before the job is done. Bring in new blood at all levels of management.
