I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to learn a lot about trading, banking, retirement, and finance in general. You also get paid to earn you series 7 and 63. It teaches you how to talk confidently and professionally on the phone. It's a great job to get into the business.

Cons

You are a robot. You are told what to say and when. There is no freedom, no creativity, and no individuality. Even your toilet breaks are timed. Promotions are very competitive, and only given to those who fit the corporate mold. Lots of time spent on the phone with angry customers. There are always new people, so things are always messed up.

Advice to Management

Retain your employees for longer with better incentives. This will create efficiency by having a knowledgable staff that can serve the clients better.
