Challenging and rewarding, even during stressful time

Back Office Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 5 years

ProsManagement, at the time, my teammates were the BEST, and support for employees was great.

ConsWent thru 4 mergers in less than 7 years. Having to lay off great people was emotional and then had to hire staff within 3 to 4 months. Very senior management was unapproachable and not receptive to suggestions from any level beneath them.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the cons and work on them in the future. Some associates, NOT ON YOUR LEVEL, have ideas that could work. Try being an UNDERCOVER BOSS and sit on the jobs that you are making decisions on WITHOUT truly knowing the process. You might learn a lot....

I had an amazing tenure at E*TRADE. Lots of opportunities to work with amazing people and projects.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible work schedule, and depending on your team, the opportunity to work on good, visible projects.

ConsConstantly changing. They had more than 6 CEO's and numerous changes in their "vision" and management. If you can't weather the storm and you're not aligned with the right people, your screwed.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together. E*TRADE has the roots to make a great company but the revolving door of CEO's and upper management are the company's own enemy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
