Good place to work, although work/life balance can be a challenge.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsExciting, dynamic, and challenging place to work. Worked with a lot of smart, intelligent, motivated people. You will be rewarded when taking on additional responsibilities while continuing to perform at a high level.

ConsWork/life balance can be a bit difficult at times. I definitely felt that people who knew how to play the game, but were by no means all-stars, were unfairly rewarded and promoted over smarter, harder working, higher performing employees who were less socially savvy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Company has moved to hard sales. Not the E*TRADE I once knew....

Financial Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at E*TRADE Financial full-time for more than a year


Pros: For the work required the pay is pretty good. I have generally had a good experience with the people I work with...they generally do… Cons: The comp plan for sales associates is the worst thing that has ever been excreted out of a human mind. Its very core is designed… Advice to Senior Management: They live in their own world. I won't bother. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
