Pros

great place to start in the industry, get your licenses, and get the general process of how a brokerage house works. young management with some experience enables you to learn with them and see errors that you hopefully wont make when you become a manager somewhere else

Cons

related to the above issue with young management. Complete lack of mentoring. You are on your own to learn the ropes of the industry. inexperienced and uneducated. Not too many places for advancement once you learn the basis.

Advice to Management

not much as it seems this is a great strategy to keep people that would otherwise not be employed to their current level anywhere else. This creates a high attrition rate in that these managers with no education or experience know this is a good place to stay and from which to retire. CEO is too new to decide how he's doing but so far he's done a good job.

    Downsides include internal communication of company direction and intiatives, and odd shift hours for some employees.

    Pros

    The company provides alot of training and courses to educate yourself. We had access to many videos and investment courses, and the company website is very informative for both clients and employees.

    Cons

    Office politics play a big role in determining promotions and the work environment is very strict for Financial Services Representatives.

    Advice to Management

    Etrade management should focus on promoting individuals that do a great job and not promote individuals based on politics or personal relationships.
