Pros

Etrade is a great place if you like to just show up and do your job and not get hassled by your boss. People that are senior to you are excellent and actually care about their employees. As long as you do what you are supposed to then they stay out of your business completely.

Cons

There is basically nowhere to go as far as advancement goes. You start there making 40K and you could work there for 25 years and make 45 or 55K max. It's a GREAT job for a student or someone that is just breaking in the industry. Just don't go in there with the idea that you are going to grab the world by the tail because Etrade is not the place to accomplish that.

Advice to Management

None, management is very fair. My boss was a "no bs" type of guy but he was great at giving all of his employees plenty of space. All the other managers are similar.

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity, great benefits package, awesome brokerage platform, good marketing by the company. ETRADE (Arlington) is also VERY involved in the community, e.g. homeless out-reach programs, elementary school visits, toys for tots around the holidays etc.

    Cons

    Senior management can be aloof and disinterested, instant messaging seems to be the only way to communicate with co-workers. Stock price cant seem to break the $2 mark. Nervous about the economy and if ETRADE will react accordingly. Lots of customer service are out-sourced to Manilla.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to learn about the "little people" that work under you, help us develop our career by introducing us to new tasks.

    Pros

    It's a good business model (mortgage issues aside) and has great products and services. The website and cash management services are user-friendly and generally problem-free. The pace of development and technology make it an exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as disposable. There is no focus on health or wellness, and employees who ask for modified schedules to care for their family are frequently denied. The HR department serves only to police the employees and deliver bad news.

    The constantly revolving leadership team makes for frequent changes to priorities and goals.

    There are different standards for every department, with the "less valuable" areas receiving very little in the way of perks or moral boosters.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your best asset. Treat them with respect. Retain the successful leaders, and eliminate those who get caught up in the power struggle and inter-departmental politics.
