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

    Pros

    Decent, reasonably professional work environment. OK place to start out and get licensed. The UT office is located in a nice area.

    Cons

    Low operational standards frequently result in customer dissatisfaction, and force representatives to be in a near constant state of apology and appeasement. I would never recommend this employer to a friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the love of all that's holy, invest in some technology. It is not OK for you to still be stuck in the 90's.

    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 have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time

    Pros

    Pay scale is decent and the company provides good health benefits.

    Cons

    Hard work and consistency have no value over at ETRADE. It is impossible to get promoted unless you are best friends with Managers and Directors. Even exploring options within ETRADE is perceived as betrayal by certain Directors. Bonus structure is also very subjective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your non managerial employees.
