I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exciting, dynamic, and challenging place to work. Worked with a lot of smart, intelligent, motivated people. You will be rewarded when taking on additional responsibilities while continuing to perform at a high level.

Cons

Work/life balance can be a bit difficult at times. I definitely felt that people who knew how to play the game, but were by no means all-stars, were unfairly rewarded and promoted over smarter, harder working, higher performing employees who were less socially savvy.

    The life-work balance is great. Everyone is focused on business while in the office then go home.

    Cons

    Financial services in general isn't a growth industry at the moment so opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks with current technology and embrace ideas that may not yield big ROI in the near term but can differentiate us from the competition going forward.
