I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- Good work/life balance
- Friendly colleages

Cons

- Management generally lacks management skills, fail to inspire employees. Middle managers have not changed for 10 years so no opportunities for other to advance.
- Good people finally start leaving after recent massive layoff. Moral has been low for a long time.
- Too much processes

Advice to Management

Value human asset. Don't view them as disposable resources.

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits for the job
    vacation starts to accrue from the first day

    Cons

    everything about the job
    you're not a broker you are a customer service rep
    you will never work for a more micromanaged company in your life, guaranteed!

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

    Pros

    Laid back and low pressure environment. Management very accommodating of adjusting work schedules and time off. Adjustable work schedules as long as you put in 8 hours and get work done. Pay is OK taking into consideration nature of work. Management really looks out for employees. Co-workers were all very friendly and approachable. Collegial work atmosphere among different departments.

    Cons

    Work can be routine and unexciting. Layoffs can be rampant especially in Operations. Can get stuck in mediocre position for long time with little pay increases and not much advancement opportunities due to business climates. Low turnover and staff cutbacks which reduces growth opportunities.
