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

    Pros

    The hiring process overall was smooth; about two months from recruiter contact to hire date.

    E*TRADE is a great company to work for. The work/life balance is the best I've experienced in my career. Everyone in sales support, especially those in the Alpharetta office are a great group of people to work with. The benefits are above average in terms of medical and ancillary insurance. Good coffee flows freely, and leadership is always treating us with food celebrations, yoga and fitness classes on the green, and logo branded trinkets.

    More importantly, I feel my contributions are valued and appreciated. Great company culture here; you feel like you can make a positive impact within your organization.

    Cons

    The 401K benefits and the onboarding process aren't terrible, but could be better. The pros of working here far outweigh the cons.

    Pros

    E*TRADE is a great learning environment for a person just entering the industry, the role of Branch Service Representative in particular. They will fully sponsor representatives to get all appropriate licenses (7, 66, etc.). The BSR role will give you insight into sales, compliance, administration, our platform, and general securities industry 'know-how'. This is a very good starting point for anyone interested in the public markets and/or wealth management.

    In regards to our branch management, you can approach our managers with any issue/question, they have a total open door policy and have a very hands on approach with new hires.

    The compensation and coverage benefits are very inline with industry standards.

    In terms of career development, within the first few months you'll be asked where you see yourself growing in the company, what your goals are, etc. They want you to help you develop within the company and offer guidance along the way.

    Cons

    As of yet, none that I have experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hold all employees accountable for making sure the client experience is top grade. This will set us aside from our competitors.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is great. The expectation is that the reps are adults and should be treated as such. The management team is supportive and invested in the success of each rep. The work atmosphere for the sales team is competitive but collaborative. I really have enjoyed my team with E*Trade.

    Cons

    The biggest con is probably the base salary. I am a big overtime worker and there is no opportunity to get paid for overtime.

    Pros

    I appreciate the collaborative environment I experience here. People are very friendly and make working together enjoyable. I still have a lot of time to work independently and never feel overwhelmed with attention or neglected from my manager.

    My team and manager are constantly encouraging me to explore topics, ask questions, and consider my own career path while learning about new job functions.

    Cons

    No wifi and I personally think 401k benefits could be better.
