    Pros

    Great culture, opportunity for career advancement, fast paced environment, numerous learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Some employees are disengaged, and are there only to earn a paycheck. Compensation not great for front line employees, which can be a demotivator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire only the best, compensate front line more, ensure that strategy is clearly articulated.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salaries in my field. Coworkers are nice people who care about their work and our clients. Cream rises to the top in a way that seems fair from my perspective (as someone who is in a fairly limited role in terms of mobility, by choice). Sabbatical every 5 years is the best benefit ever. You get out of the company as much as or as little as you give.

    Cons

    I understand call center jobs can be frustrating but I'm on the technology side. Things can move slowly due to the size of the company, regulatory requirements, and so forth. The acquisitions process is nightmarish, so if you need things that the rest of the herd doesn't in order to do your job, get ready for red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the client focus message. Since we're all clients ourselves, it's pretty motivating.
