    Pros

    The benefits at Schwab are decent and I worked alongside some very qualified colleagues who worked hard and knowledgeable about the industry.

    Cons

    The Management there is absolutely awful. The Manager I had in particular seemed to enjoy pitting team members against each other and causing drama within the Department. For the amount of work that we did along with overseeing billions of dollars in assets, the pay was pretty pathetic with little to no chance for moving up within the company.

    Advice to 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    The pay grade is very outdated and needs to be addressed.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 looking to leave. The technology is extremely outdated and instead of using money to update it, the company seems to just pour more money into the old technology.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance.
    People are supportive and non-competitive.
    Great for those looking for non-challenging long-term career.
    Nice perks.

    Cons

    Passive-aggressive behaviors; no one says "no";
    IT infrastructure is a mess and Mac support is lacking. What is this, 2004?
    Marketing is not integrated and way behind the curve in terms of modern, social web.
    Inadequate support for user-centered design practices.
    Takes forever to get anything done because of so many layers and departments.

    Advice to Management

    In terms of digital marketing, hire more fresh blood with solid digital agency experience. CS should be split into digital and non-digital groups.
