I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Paid training for series 7/63 license
-Decent pay for a recent college grad
-Will learn a lot about the industry

Cons

This position is extremely micromanaged. They have a computer system that tracks everything you do, down to the second. If you clock in one minute late or stay on a call too long you'll hear about it immediately. The job became extremely stressful do to management constantly on your back about CE (leads). The morale here is very low do to the fact that the job gets very redundant. There is no opportunity for growth. Promotions are viewed as lateral movement so there is little pay increase.

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxing environment, good place to work if u like screwing over customers.

    Cons

    The company hires very inexperienced people that have no business working in the financial field. I worked in the margins department and managers and supervisors are really incompetent and have really screwed over clients because they really don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire smarter people that have skills talent in the financial industry, don't just hire them because they have a degree.
