Employee Comments

  • Nov 14, 2014
    Former Senior Staff Software Engineer in San Francisco, California

    Best benefit packages: 1-month paid sabbatical leave every 5 years; sick time in addition to vacation time off.

  • Nov 13, 2014
    Current Project Manager in San Francisco, California

    After 5 years a sabbatical is given to employees in good standing

  • Nov 7, 2014
    Current Product Manager in San Francisco, California

    Expensive and poor plan. A factor.

  • Oct 13, 2014
    Current Senior Staff Applications Software Engineer in San Francisco, California

    401K employer match is good, at 5% of your base salary plus bonus.
    Health benefits have gradually derogated over time though. If your preference is a PPO, choice is very limited, and has gotten more and more expensive over time.

    Current Employee in Indianapolis, Indiana

    The company is extremely focused on work/life balance and has programs based towards this. Health Insurance has gotten worse over the years.

  • Oct 9, 2014
    Former Senior Client Service Representative in Maitland, Florida

    Great all around benefits, however cost more and more each year.

  • Oct 7, 2014
    Current Employee in Phoenix, Arizona

    Fair package some health benefits are more expensive because we took so long to switch under Obama care rules.

  • Oct 6, 2014
    Former Operations Specialist in Austin, Texas

    Healthcare, retirement plan and off time were excellent benefits.

  • Oct 15, 2014
    Current Employee in San Francisco, California

    Good benefits. 401K match - up to 5% .

  • Oct 14, 2014
    Current Employee in Richfield, Ohio

    Most benefits are great however health benefits have recently changed for the worse (which I think is a theme across the business). The health costs from my check each pay in addition to the HSA pre-tax cost have more than exceeded my annual increases to the point that my net income has decreased the past two years since the HSA vehicle took over the industry. All in all, Schwab is a really good place to work from time off, flexible scheduling, bonuses and engagement activities. The culture is friendly with relaxed business casual attire but there is a lot of work, high expectations and a level of healthy competition in areas with growth potential (which definitely depends on your department).
