I have been working at Charles Schwab

Pros

I am impressed by the training and Schwab's managers. They will go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Lots of room to move around and advance.

Cons

The salary structure is just ok. Not really competitive with other financial firms. Many employees move around which could disrupt a team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would encourage management to increase the salary's for mid level employees who could perhaps be making more money eleswhere.

    Would be a good job if it wasn't like working in a digital prison.

    Pros

    1) They have a sabbatical program that allows a month off every 5 years. (I would rather just an extra week of vacation each year.)
    2) San Francisco is a nice place to visit when you have to go into the corporate office.

    Cons

    1) Pay is not really competitive in the area.
    2) The technology used at Schwab is outdated
    3) The computers and internet are extremely locked down making it difficult to stay up to date on your industry or demo new tools. Even remote access is typically done through Citrix!
    4) Employees don't feel empowered and often look to their supervisors for validation before making a decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your restrictions to technology. It is so restrictive, you will have a hard time getting and keeping high quality technology people. We like to stay informed on new technology (that is why we are high end) and your environment does not allow for this.
