A dominant market leader in the RIA space. Better than average in retail brokerage.

Pros

Opinions of employees are valued. Schwab is a fierce competitor and generally does what it needs to do to compete on price and product. Very rarely do conflicts of interest fog decisions.

Cons

Schwab is a large company with the unfortunate downsides of bureaucracy of policies, technology, and red tape. Although I don't believe it is any worse than other large companies.

Advice to Management

Invest in state of the art technology for your employees and be mindful of the potential of over-assigning workloads which have the potential to have client experience suffer. Schwab has a solid reputation for quality customer service. Don't let that slip.

    Pros

    Founder vision is to make financial opportunities available to everyone, executive culture reflects that vision. Compensation is good compared to other similar jobs. Lots of opportunities to move sideways.

    Cons

    Operating efficiency programs have led to short term decisions, and some less than stellar offerings. Constant pressure to only deliver wins.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the ivory tower and meet employees. Don't accept undesirable actions from any leadership.


  2. Great until a poor manager forced several to find other jobs
