ETRADE isnt what it used to be but it's still alive, surprisingly.

I worked at E*TRADE Financial

Pros

There's a lot to learn at ETRADE, even for seasoned developers. I was impressed with the length of time most of the team members had been there, 6-10+ years. Some people have been there since the old glory days of ETRADE.

Cons

In my perspective the overall technology culture at ETRADE is hampered by poor team interconnectivity and low socialization. It seemed that groups of people tended to associate primarily within their own team, or within their own culture. Not unlike a lot of other companies, but this is clearly a weakness. I would have liked to see more of a team building effort, especially at times when morale had been low. My perception of the environment is that it is extremely competitive due to the lack of trust outside of cliques.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe team building across cultural boundaries is sorely needed. Trust and transparency is a must. Secrets and whispering behind people's backs only adds to the division. Focus on integrating new talented developers within the ranks of the seasoned heroes of yore.
