I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time

Pros

Good place for a young person starting out in the securities industry to get licensed and learn a few things. They pay for your licensing. You don't really have to take your work home with you.

Cons

Low pay. It's a call center. Low employee morale. Every second of your day is micromanaged. Rude customers. Promotions are actually just lateral moves to other departments doing the same thing. Company touts promoting from within but sought after positions are filled outside.

Advice to Management

De-emphasize the "CE" requirement. Many excellent reps do not receive the recognition they should because they choose to not abuse the referral system like other reps. Being able to "put on over" on management with inflated referral leads shouldn't be rewarded. Top referral performers are the least likely to allow others to observe their habits for a reason.

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

    Pros

    - Relaxed work environment
    - Good work life balance
    - No hectic schedules

    Cons

    - No new products
    - Maintenance of existing products
    - Least recognition for good work done
    - Benefits are ok
    - Green Card processing is very slow and bad (nothing more can be expected since the company is in cost cutting mode)

    Advice to Management

    - New products and new idea should be brought in.

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

    Back off. Let your employees do what they were hired for without constant check ins.
