I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great job for those with 1-2 years industry experience, in their mid-late 20's, as income can be good (approx. $125k average total comp, $200k top performers) for that level of career. However, nowhere to grow from there, no special skills are gained to increase your marketability, etc...

Cons

No long-term career growth potential for branch sales employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less micromanagement, have plan in place to retain long-term employees (sales reps in branches)

    Pros

    Great people work here. Coworkers feel like a cohesive unit. Everyone smiles and says hi to each other.Great place to get licensed (Series 7 is the MO of Schwab).

    Cons

    Unless you want to take phone calls forever, there are very limited growth opportunities within Schwab. If you know where you want your career to go and you're ambitious, this is not the place for you. You will feel trapped.
