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

    Pros

    Benefits and training opportunities abound along with internal promotional opportunities. Decent salary also.

    Cons

    Sometimes sales quotas are difficult to meet for certain positions. This is expected and meeting those quotas can lead to significant bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee morale is important within any company.

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

    Pros

    Management, at the time, my teammates were the BEST, and support for employees was great.

    Cons

    Went thru 4 mergers in less than 7 years. Having to lay off great people was emotional and then had to hire staff within 3 to 4 months. Very senior management was unapproachable and not receptive to suggestions from any level beneath them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the cons and work on them in the future. Some associates, NOT ON YOUR LEVEL, have ideas that could work. Try being an UNDERCOVER BOSS and sit on the jobs that you are making decisions on WITHOUT truly knowing the process. You might learn a lot....

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, and depending on your team, the opportunity to work on good, visible projects.

    Cons

    Constantly changing. They had more than 6 CEO's and numerous changes in their "vision" and management. If you can't weather the storm and you're not aligned with the right people, your screwed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together. E*TRADE has the roots to make a great company but the revolving door of CEO's and upper management are the company's own enemy.
