Pros

The people at E*Trade are great, everyone is very professional yet easy to talk to and approachable. Managers have a very good relationship with employees. Employee appreciation is demonstrated often, and there are programs and events that demonstrate upper management is committed to a good work/life balance.

Cons

Downsides include internal communication of company direction and intiatives, and odd shift hours for some employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Etrade is headed in the right direction, keep up the good work! Overall a great place to be

    Pros

    The company provides alot of training and courses to educate yourself. We had access to many videos and investment courses, and the company website is very informative for both clients and employees.

    Cons

    Office politics play a big role in determining promotions and the work environment is very strict for Financial Services Representatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Etrade management should focus on promoting individuals that do a great job and not promote individuals based on politics or personal relationships.

    Pros

    Young company - their youth makes them more aggressive at implementing new technologies and providing new products for the customers.
    Growing company - though the economic downturn has had it's toll on many companies, E*TRADE is still focused on growth. They constantly promote expanding their customer base by offering new products and undertaking more business partnerships.
    Fast paced - there's always something new and different happening. You may find that you're in customer service but working on other projects and working with other departments.
    Potential for career development - though costs can be an issue if you speak with management about improving your skills if it's a plus for the company you may get what you ask for.

    Cons

    Young management - not that age makes you a more skilled manager, but a manager or team lead with 1 or 2 years of work experience in total, even with a degree, doesn't have all the skills needed to lead a group (especially when more than the half the group is older than them).
    Lack of focus on core functionality - new features are great for the customer, but sometimes the drive to put out new features overshadows the necessities of correcting systems that are long overdue for a fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More performance evaluations - a once a month/quarter/year evaluation isn't good enough for most people. Going over stats also isn't entirely giving a representative a good evaluation either.
    Honesty - not that you can tell your representatives everything, but for major issues it's better to let your workers know the situation than to wait until the last minute and create confusion and mistrust.
