    Pros

    Good pay. Good leads. Good management. CEO has done a wonderful job. Good work/life balance. Great benefits. Health insurance is great! Great people. Great experience. Great clients to work with. All in all, I really enjoy working with ETRADE.

    Cons

    100% 401K match would be better than 50%. That's nitpicking though.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and training opportunities abound along with internal promotional opportunities. Decent salary also.

    Cons

    Sometimes sales quotas are difficult to meet for certain positions. This is expected and meeting those quotas can lead to significant bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee morale is important within any company.

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

    Pros

    Management, at the time, my teammates were the BEST, and support for employees was great.

    Cons

    Went thru 4 mergers in less than 7 years. Having to lay off great people was emotional and then had to hire staff within 3 to 4 months. Very senior management was unapproachable and not receptive to suggestions from any level beneath them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the cons and work on them in the future. Some associates, NOT ON YOUR LEVEL, have ideas that could work. Try being an UNDERCOVER BOSS and sit on the jobs that you are making decisions on WITHOUT truly knowing the process. You might learn a lot....
