    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Chuck Schwab and Walt Bettinger seem like the real deal ... sincere in caring about both their employees and their customers.

    The company has been pretty successful in eliminating conflict of interest in the products that the brokers sell.

    The 'customer comes first' attitude seems to be real again. No longer just lip service.

    Cons

    At least when I left there were still several directors that had yet to convert away from the greed of the Pottruck years. Some departments were clearly happy and doing well. Some were still suffering.

    Employee incentive still seems to be misaligned at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to the return back to Chuck Schwab's founding principles. Do more to make employees also Schwab stock holders. Continue weeding out those directors and managers that are still holding on the 'Pottruck' attitude. You will continue losing your best people until you can really fix the employee experience.

    Good people, but low pay

    I worked at Charles Schwab for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good culture and provides a lot of training. Many career paths to take if you are located in one of the primary service center cities.

    Cons

    Low salary and annual salary increase is terrible. Tell you 2% is standard, and should be grateful in the "current environment".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more openness with salary info, especially with your own employees. Two people in the same department, working the same job could have a completely different salary. Even it out, and pay people what they deserve.
