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.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than a year

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good staff and middle managers. Salary and benefits could be better, but not bad overall. Interesting industry. Good place to start a career.

    Cons

    Way too much micro-managing. Very secretive and very political atmosphere. Morale rather low. Senior management has an every person for themselves attitude. Very difficult to move around to other areas of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities to move to other areas of the company.
