Good place to work, although work/life balance can be a challenge.

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

Pros

Exciting, dynamic, and challenging place to work. Worked with a lot of smart, intelligent, motivated people. You will be rewarded when taking on additional responsibilities while continuing to perform at a high level.

Cons

Work/life balance can be a bit difficult at times. I definitely felt that people who knew how to play the game, but were by no means all-stars, were unfairly rewarded and promoted over smarter, harder working, higher performing employees who were less socially savvy.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great, the people are great, generally pretty good to work with. The benefits are second to none.

    Cons

    The commissions bonus program, lacks transparency and tends to leave you wonderig if it is set up to benefit you or the company.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time for less than a 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.
