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

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

Pros

Exciting, 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.

Cons

Work/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.

    Pros

    The life-work balance is great. Everyone is focused on business while in the office then go home.

    Cons

    Financial services in general isn't a growth industry at the moment so opportunities are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks with current technology and embrace ideas that may not yield big ROI in the near term but can differentiate us from the competition going forward.

    I have been working at E*TRADE Financial full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong on trading technology and the range of investment products available to its customers. Seeks to compete in a very competitive environment.

    Cons

    The company is still young and its processes and policies are not complete. Compare to competitor firms, where I've also worked, representative tools and support is highly lacking.
