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

    Pros

    Best Front End Payout in Brokerage Business.
    Branches are a much nicer environment to work in than a call center.
    Base Pay is about 50-55k with the additional sales comp 100k-200k is achievable

    This is a great opportunity to help clients and get paid well to do it.

    Cons

    Back office operations in general feels very disconnected to the clients.

    The new CEO is a lawyer that specialises in M and A.

    Your best bet is to crush your quota, and be humble. Also keep your ideas to yourself management already knows what they want to do, or not do.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself if you use our pro ETCM management solutions. If your answer is no then simply make the changes necessary to earn your business then you will have the competitive advantage over the competition that you are looking for.

    Low pressure environment. Good starting point for figuring out what you enjoy doing.
