    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came in as an entry level employee with no experience and I received really great training and was shown how to excel not just in the position but in the company.

    Cons

    it would be nice if upper level management would be hired from within the org. There are a lot of highly qualified people already there but many upper level executive positions were brought in from outside of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Customer service really is focused on the customer, which in my experience is rare. They take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Promises are made in regards to being promoted, and they claim that they are a meritocracy. But when you surpass your metrics, there's some BS reason that someone who performs worse than you, but has been there longer, gets the position over you.

    It's nice to have a consistent base that won't get taken away like with other companies in the industry. Nice selection of financial products to play with. You will learn a lot and you can make a lot of money if you work hard.

    Cons

    cube environment. Can't work as independently as with other companies.

    Pros

    I like the E*TRADE because it's family oriented.

    Cons

    One of the downside of E*TRADE is that when a top leader leaves the company the assistant can lose her position.
