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

    Pros

    Good suite of products and services for entry and mid level investors.

    Cons

    Back office operations completes work on their own timeline with no communications. No coaching from management - only directives. Senior Leadership not approachable. No clear direction for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategic direction for the company, then develop a matching pay plan and coach your way to success.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, pay, and training. At 5:00, you can leave and forget about your job (in a good way).

    Cons

    Aside from "licensed stockbroker" sounding important, just another customer service job in a call center.

    Advice to Management

    I realize a call center job is a call center job, but there's no reason why management couldn't treat it like more than that. In general, FSRs are relatively well educated, and management could treat them more like professionals than like mere phone jockeys.
