    I worked at E*TRADE Financial (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    E*trade is known for innovation. So where along the lines they lost their way. It seems that the company has found its mojo. Lots of energy around innovation and new ideas are taking place. Management is making every effort to create the right environment to encourage and foster new thinking

    Cons

    There are many new processes that management should consider streamlining. Few opportunities for promotions

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    Training provided to earn your Series 7 is excellent. Base pay is decent compared to most call center jobs. Promotions are easy to come by since the company cleaned house a few years ago. There is unlimited overtime opportunity during tax season.

    Cons

    Employees that work less than 50 hours a week receive poor performance reviews. You will be required to refer millions in outside assets from existing client base and receive no bonus for your efforts. Your job is to help clients maintain regulatory compliance so you have to maintain a high level of focus for long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on training after Series 7.
