    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you find the right team, you will be working with nice people, some of whom have been there for years. It is a more laid-back environment, in most cases, and again, depending on the team. Changes in leadership means that some finally got to advance in title (the company has a relatively flat hierarchy, and rarely promoted from within to manager positions), and new technology is started to be explored and used.

    Cons

    In the past year and a half, there was a major layoff, in which most of the contractors, and some full timers (some who had been there for a decade) got laid off for the first time in years. Within a few months, departments were scrambling to rehire to fill those positions and new ones too. It could be argued that the company was trying to save money and get rid of poor performers, but in the end, we hired newbies who had to be retrained (the tech 'stack' is archaic, frustrating, and a time-suck to deal with) and the market got so hot it was extremely difficult to hire top performers who would accept the lower pay Etrade was offering. All of this resulted in some poor code/projects not up to the same level as before. On top of that, Etrade became very strict about physical time spent in the building. They were always obsessed with 'badging in/badging out', and we were periodically told to be in the office no later than 9:30 am (sometimes by 8, whenever a CEO was in town), but recently I felt like we were more closely monitored on this, to the point where people wouldn't leave the building for lunch, and would take less walks around the parking lot, and would even just sit in their cubes doing nothing until 5:30 came around, if they had finished their work for the day. For a tech company, this is odd...usually if you are lucky enough to finish for the day, you are free to go, and techies are known for their late starts in the morning and leaning towards a flexible schedule. And forget working from home, at all, unless your manager likes you, and is not scared of discussing your badge log with their superiors. If you like that sort of thing, don't join Etrade. The bottom line is that this is a financial institution, based and led by often clueless people in New York, who don't have an understanding of what makes the tech side of things great (which is a shame, because for the most part, Etrade is an online business, and is known for that). 4? CEOs have come and gone in the past 5 years, and the current leadership (Idzick) is as hard core NY as you can get...he was brought in by the board to get money for shareholders, and money and the short term is what he is focused on. For a year after he joined, he was unable to convey any sort of goal, long or short term, to us worker peons. In the interim, many long timers decided to leave after a decade of service (to apple, start ups...lost some good talent). My feeling is that they will continue to sell off portions of the business, and 'lean things down' until they can sell the trading platform. When that goes, so goes the company and whoever works for it. It may take years, and in the meantime, if you wish to put some financial coding experience on your resume, join. But don't make the mistake of staying too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what it takes to be a successful software company. Support your Tech people, give them the tools and environment it takes to succeed and attract the good talent in the Silicon Valley. Provide a better path toward career advancement and pay raises. Let people becomes leaders within the company. Stop fiddling around with monitoring badge logs, and focus on the bigger picture.
