    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits aren't bad. The staff is great! The company seems to be getting its act together from a profitability point of view.

    Cons

    Most managers from director on up to senior management are some of the meanest people I have worked with anywhere. Extreme micro-management combined with arrogant, unappreciative managers has lead to low morale and some turnover. In spite of decent salaries, the raises are quite terrible. Senior management does not seem to have any vision for the future which makes for further complacency.

    Advice to Management

    It's quite clear that management has given up. There is no vision and no innovation. Instead of pretending that the company has a future, just admit that the company is just doing enough to sell.
