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

    Pros

    Strong on trading technology and the range of investment products available to its customers. Seeks to compete in a very competitive environment.

    Cons

    The company is still young and its processes and policies are not complete. Compare to competitor firms, where I've also worked, representative tools and support is highly lacking.

    I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great benefits, most people are easy to work with. work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    management is poor and mired by favoritism. senior management has their pets who get promoted every year while high producing employees are passed over every year. there is a culture of saying no. projects have 17 rounds of approvals, and everyone is looking to say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get fresh talent from outside the company. too many internal hirings leads to an army of yes-men.
