    Sink or Swim

    Former Employee - Client Service Specialist in Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Client Service Specialist in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are friendly and professional.

    Cons

    For an entry-level position into investments, dealing with client accounts and money, I would expect the training at Schwab to be more complete. My training was about two-weeks, with a different trainer almost every day, and the trainers didn't follow or utilize the training book as often as I would expect. By the time training was over, I didn't receive a lot of support, and felt like it was sink or swim for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regardless of what role someone is being hired for, ensure to provide complete and detailed training.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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