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

    Pros

    In my experience, I've found that E*trade fosters a collaborative environment, promotes employee growth and gives employees a platform to perform tasks that will help them gain the confidence and skills necessary to advance.

    Cons

    I feel that they should broaden their staff auditor recruitment to include a wider base of universities. The organization could gain a wider base of young talent by doing so.

    Advice to Management

    No advise to offer.
