Schwab is Employee and Client Focused

Vice President, Financial Consultant (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

ProsCharles Schwab tries to balance employee needs and desires with client needs and desires in order to have the perfect mix of happy sales people and happy clients using valuable services. For example, employees have tremendous health insurance benefits, great 401k plan that is 100% vested from day one, sabbaticals of 4 weeks after 5 years service, time off for volunteer work, etc. In addition, Schwab tries to provide a balance for all clients from free services to fee based services as well as one on one time with clients, and customizable solutions.

ConsSometimes there is too much focus on one area of opportunity or growth and other areas are neglected and/or seized upon by the competition.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify the compensation plan.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Manager I had in particular seemed to enjoy pitting team members against each other and causing drama within… Advice to Senior Management: The pay grade is very outdated and needs to be addressed. Morale was so low when I left that every one of my colleagues was… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
