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

    Pros

    Very intelligent upper and middle management. E*trade has done a solid job of bringing on board top talent from other firms. They are also striving to be competitive and transform the company. Everyone at home-office level cares deeply for the success of the company.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the tech or software side of the business, working at Etrade is more like working at a top-tier bank but with less pay, more frustration over lack of resources, and less opportunities.
    -Very long hours, little flexibility.
    - Pushing managers to give low reviews to employees. Promotions are almost impossible to secure in some teams. Structure set up for very low morale and will likely result in frustrated employees seeking opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve work-life balance, encourage more flexibility such remote work in HQ and home-offices; encourage positive peer and managerial feedback, as opposed to the opposite; restructure advancement process and ensure that all teams are given the opportunity to promote equally. Getting E*Trade to the next level does not require sacrificing employee happiness in the process.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time

    Pros

    Pay scale is decent and the company provides good health benefits.

    Cons

    Hard work and consistency have no value over at ETRADE. It is impossible to get promoted unless you are best friends with Managers and Directors. Even exploring options within ETRADE is perceived as betrayal by certain Directors. Bonus structure is also very subjective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your non managerial employees.

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

    Pros

    Decent, reasonably professional work environment. OK place to start out and get licensed. The UT office is located in a nice area.

    Cons

    Low operational standards frequently result in customer dissatisfaction, and force representatives to be in a near constant state of apology and appeasement. I would never recommend this employer to a friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the love of all that's holy, invest in some technology. It is not OK for you to still be stuck in the 90's.

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

    Pros

    Great time off policy. Good location in Arlington, VA very close to the metro and lots of lunch options around.

    Cons

    Most of the cubicles have little to no natural light. Very few events that bring the entire company together in order to foster a positive culture. Managers are not interested in transparency or in the opinions of their employees. Very little opportunity to impact the business because the upper management is extremely insular. Even though the pay is decent it is not worth it at all.
