Pros

great place to start in the industry, get your licenses, and get the general process of how a brokerage house works. young management with some experience enables you to learn with them and see errors that you hopefully wont make when you become a manager somewhere else

Cons

related to the above issue with young management. Complete lack of mentoring. You are on your own to learn the ropes of the industry. inexperienced and uneducated. Not too many places for advancement once you learn the basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

not much as it seems this is a great strategy to keep people that would otherwise not be employed to their current level anywhere else. This creates a high attrition rate in that these managers with no education or experience know this is a good place to stay and from which to retire. CEO is too new to decide how he's doing but so far he's done a good job.

    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
