I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 10 years)
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.
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.
