    I have been working at Charles Schwab

    Pros

    Company is committed to the client and to doing the right thing
    You are not forced to sell any products to the clients, unless you are a branch financial consultant. Even then, anything you are "selling" is only if it is in the best interests of the client.

    Cons

    Unless you want to work in the branch, you are severely limited in locations you can live and work in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let Brokers place option trades in their accounts. Brokers have passed industry exams to prove option knowledge and are expected to be able to place option trades for customers, but are not trusted to place option trades in their own accounts.
