I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good staff and middle managers. Salary and benefits could be better, but not bad overall. Interesting industry. Good place to start a career.

Cons

Way too much micro-managing. Very secretive and very political atmosphere. Morale rather low. Senior management has an every person for themselves attitude. Very difficult to move around to other areas of the company.

Advice to Management

Provide more opportunities to move to other areas of the company.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good life work balance; sane work hours and the company management does a nice job of providing team-building events and fosters an overall sense of good spirit.

    Cons

    Working with other teams can be difficult; not the most challenging job I've had in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Break through some of the silos and get teams to communicate and work together more cooperatively. Challenge the status quo and don't just settle for "business as usual."

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fine place to spend 3-4 years but not a place for a long-term career. Good experience in corporate services to take to another company. Great experience in equity compensation but usually you must move away from Atlanta to find another job in the equity comp field.

    Cons

    Management won't developing employees, management always hires from the outside, raises are not regular but come every 3-4 years. Client services is overworked, client management is underworked and overpaid, and product management is underappreciated which results in incredibly high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the regular cycle of building up and pulling back.
