I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Makes it easy to get acclimated with the market and a range of investments. Benefits are great. Good place to get a series 7 as they have a good training program but most moves within the company after that are lateral.

Cons

Very micro managed. Because of this, it is difficult to create relationships within the workplace. Most employees show up and leave with very little interaction. It is luck of the draw to get off work and most people end up taking PTO days in the middle of the week because Mondays and Fridays are the busiest days. New hires typically are stuck on an off hour shift that may include nights and weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a CEO longer than 6 months that can implement a strategy to be more successful.

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

    Pros

    Fine place to spend 3-4 years but not a place for a long-term career. Good experience in corporate services to take to another company. Great experience in equity compensation but usually you must move away from Atlanta to find another job in the equity comp field.

    Cons

    Management won't developing employees, management always hires from the outside, raises are not regular but come every 3-4 years. Client services is overworked, client management is underworked and overpaid, and product management is underappreciated which results in incredibly high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the regular cycle of building up and pulling back.

    Pros

    Work colleagues keep day fun

    Cons

    Management makes salaries on performance of reps. Since products are sub par management continues to squeeze blood from stones which makes job difficult
