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

    Pros

    Pay you to get your Series 7 and Series 63 license, benefits are very good, starting pay is decent. Learn a good deal about the financial world in a short amount of time, very applicable if you move to another financial job. All my managers but one were great people to work with, and always there to help. You get a 10% pay increase for working any hours past 5 pm, and any time on the weekends. Business casual dress.

    Cons

    You are monitored on everything you do, from taking exactly a 15 min break, to "unscheduled" bathroom breaks. You phone and computer are tied together and you must "code" you phone to what you are doing, so they now what you are doing all the time. Job can get very monotonous and repetitive. Can be easy to get burnt out. E*trade is open 24/7, so you if you get stuck on the night shift, it can be a while before you get back to regular hours. You have to try to get "leads" for the company (7-10 a week) and you don't get any additional pay for going the extra mile and getting them.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the 24/7 monitoring, would be nice to get a little compensation for leads.
