Pros

Great benefits and work life balance

Cons

Call center environment, everyone hates their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make an effort to improve the work environment and employee morale. Please telling employees how poorly the company is doing to scare them into working harder.

    Pros

    They hand out titles like lollipops and E*TRADE looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    They hook you in the position with a higher than normal salary and promises of bonsuses, raises and promotions. Opinion throughout the company is that these are never delivered on. Good jobs go to outside hires. Very poorly managed from senior managers on up. Extreme micro management. Policies within the company don't communicate to each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off. Let your employees do what they were hired for without constant check ins.

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

    Pros

    Good staff and middle managers. Salary and benefits could be better, but not bad overall. Interesting industry. Good place to start a career.

    Cons

    Way too much micro-managing. Very secretive and very political atmosphere. Morale rather low. Senior management has an every person for themselves attitude. Very difficult to move around to other areas of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities to move to other areas of the company.
