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

I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time (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

    great benefits, most people are easy to work with. work/life balance is great.

    Cons

    management is poor and mired by favoritism. senior management has their pets who get promoted every year while high producing employees are passed over every year. there is a culture of saying no. projects have 17 rounds of approvals, and everyone is looking to say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get fresh talent from outside the company. too many internal hirings leads to an army of yes-men.

    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.
