"I've worked for E*Trade since 2015. The coworkers are great to work with. Compensation for good work is very low and needs improvement; valuing employees should be a priority."

"It boils down to your team. Experience will differ by team. 1. A lot of favoritism, and ass wiping. 2. My way or the highway approach. My team was leadership by FEAR. Human resources is a joke. Management puppy. There is no fair game. If you are considering a job at eTrade, ask questions."

"Work in software engineering in etrade, you will have exposure to all aspect in web application development. It is a good place to learn. The work /lift balance is not as friendly as people expected sometimes. Management tends to micro-manage and play favors."
