Good culture but the company needs to do more to keep its employees

Pros

Benefits are great. I met some very smart and hardworking people at Schwab, its a shame that they arent rewarded like they should be.

Cons

Pay is on the low end for most entry level type jobs and the company hasn't given good raises or bonuses since 2007. While I was there, the attitude from leadership seemed to be one of "If you don't like your job than hit the road because we can find someone else." What ever happened to viewing employees as assets rather than seat fillers?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder to reward everyone who does a good job, not just the top 5% of performers. Stop making excuses on why you can't pay more and become more competitive with peer companies in terms of compensation.

    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.
