    Charles Schwab is a solid work environment to explained your career. Devoted and intelligent people to work with.

    Nothing that I can think of, they hire a lot of people through contract work for 12 months, but they do bring you over into the company after that time.

    Pros

    Company maintains a strong commitment to doing business ethically with a high degree of integrity. Benefits are very good. Work environment is positive and management is generally good. If you live to help people you will love working for Schwab.

    Cons

    If you live to make money, you may want to look elsewhere. Compensation is relatively low and advancement can be limited depending on your role and location.

    Advice to Management

    Never stray from the values on which Chuck founded the company.

    Pros

    I have been there for 16 years now. The culture of the company is all about the best interests of the customer. Everything is built up around that core concept. I have great pride and satisfaction in working for Schwab.

    Cons

    I have been the sole member of a geolocated team for almost 8 years. That has been a lonely job, but most of that is my fault for not reaching out and building relationships with my co-workers nearby, even though they are in totally different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the core principles.

    Pros

    True "family" environment, teams are supportive and focus on leveraging each other's strengths to accomplish tasks.

    Solid values but company still focuses on innovation.

    Pay is strong and bonus program gets stronger every year. Health are on par with industry.

    Cons

    No paid maternity leave like most FORTUNE 500 employers. 401k match could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping total comp and benefits packages competitive.
