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

Pros

They hand out titles like lollipops and E*TRADE looks good on a resume.

Cons

They hook you in the position with a higher than normal salary and promises of bonsuses, raises and promotions. Opinion throughout the company is that these are never delivered on. Good jobs go to outside hires. Very poorly managed from senior managers on up. Extreme micro management. Policies within the company don't communicate to each other.

Advice to Management

Back off. Let your employees do what they were hired for without constant check ins.

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

    Pros

    Makes it easy to get acclimated with the market and a range of investments. Benefits are great. Good place to get a series 7 as they have a good training program but most moves within the company after that are lateral.

    Cons

    Very micro managed. Because of this, it is difficult to create relationships within the workplace. Most employees show up and leave with very little interaction. It is luck of the draw to get off work and most people end up taking PTO days in the middle of the week because Mondays and Fridays are the busiest days. New hires typically are stuck on an off hour shift that may include nights and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a CEO longer than 6 months that can implement a strategy to be more successful.

    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.
