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

Pros

Good life work balance; sane work hours and the company management does a nice job of providing team-building events and fosters an overall sense of good spirit.

Cons

Working with other teams can be difficult; not the most challenging job I've had in my career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break through some of the silos and get teams to communicate and work together more cooperatively. Challenge the status quo and don't just settle for "business as usual."

    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.
