I have been working at E*TRADE Financial for more than a year

Pros

Pay you to get your Series 7 and Series 63 license, benefits are very good, starting pay is decent. Learn a good deal about the financial world in a short amount of time, very applicable if you move to another financial job. All my managers but one were great people to work with, and always there to help. You get a 10% pay increase for working any hours past 5 pm, and any time on the weekends. Business casual dress.

Cons

You are monitored on everything you do, from taking exactly a 15 min break, to "unscheduled" bathroom breaks. You phone and computer are tied together and you must "code" you phone to what you are doing, so they now what you are doing all the time. Job can get very monotonous and repetitive. Can be easy to get burnt out. E*trade is open 24/7, so you if you get stuck on the night shift, it can be a while before you get back to regular hours. You have to try to get "leads" for the company (7-10 a week) and you don't get any additional pay for going the extra mile and getting them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease up on the 24/7 monitoring, would be nice to get a little compensation for leads.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, work and life balance is fantastic.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees, they will use and lose you. Company politics drive or stifle programs depending on who your buddies are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must communicate to your teams, make them feel valued.

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hard working, proud employees. Underdog mentality led to trying to achieve a greater good for the company. Benefits were competitive.

    Cons

    Executive team turnover. Bad balance sheet management effected everybody. Young sales organization did not have the resources or training to effectively manage sales force.
