    Pros

    Some teams are very effective and get a lot done. Industry best practices are very team dependent. Decent vacation policy. Average pay

    Cons

    Some teams are very inefficient. No big picture vision. People work in their own silos

    Advice to Management

    Don't change strategy at the drop of a hat

    Opportunities are available for those that apply themselves. The locations great and so are the views. Great people in a challenging environment.

    Cons

    Upper management has shipped off to New York and is no longer around. Number of consultants in key roles.

    Pros

    Good pay. Good leads. Good management. CEO has done a wonderful job. Good work/life balance. Great benefits. Health insurance is great! Great people. Great experience. Great clients to work with. All in all, I really enjoy working with ETRADE.

    Cons

    100% 401K match would be better than 50%. That's nitpicking though.

    Pros

    They pay you on time.
    They pay for your security license as well.
    Sigmund is the best trainer in the world.

    Cons

    very exhausting atmosphere...treated like machines rather than people once you get on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Joel Osteen as ceo...maybe it'll be nicer around there.

    Pros

    Easy to manage work life balance, which is generally difficult in Bay area companies. Freedom to express your view and implement the same.
    Top management keen to work with ground level employees

    Cons

    Management change has caused some anxiety among the employees. But off late that is settling down. I suppose it should change for good.
