Pros

Very laid back office atmosphere, relaxed dress code, flexible hours, intelligent management, career advancement opportunities, etc. The company also pays for pursuing industry designations and is great about making sure there are enough sponsored events to keep up with CE credit requirements for those designations. They are very good about keeping you informed of your progress and I've experienced a very "open door" type atmosphere.

Cons

Compared to the same position at other companies, the salary isn't the greatest but there are other things that make up for it in the benefits package. I did come from a much smaller company so the bureaucracy aspect took some getting use to. Even the slightest changes require a long time to implement and that can be frustrating; however, overall there isn't much negative I have to say about Schwab. I've been here for about a year and it's been fantastic.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, solid company with good reputation. Young work team for the most part. Pleasent environment with good equipment and tools.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, high turnover. Have not seen advancement within team for almost three years. A lot of promises, no results. Pay is above poverty level. HR person actually told a group "If you need to make more money you need to look elsewhere". Churn and burn.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get out of the office and interact with the people on the phones. Schwab does a great job of teaching management what to say to make you go away or take your problem someplace else. Poor communication from management to the rank and file.
