10 great years, 2 not so much

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Charles Schwab full-time

ProsSome of the nicest people you will ever meet. The feeling you're working for a company that has values and a purpose. Feeling like the work you're doing is actually helping people.

ConsBeware the reorg - they love to reorganize constantly. If you hate your job or boss don't worry - it will probably change soon enough. Unfortunately this leads to confusion, institutional knowledge getting lost in the shuffle, sometimes terrible situations for unsuspecting employees. And heaven help you if you get separated from your support network. Oh, and get the title and position you want on your way in because there is no such thing as a promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking you've found Willy Wonka's magic ticket with every new executive and reorganizing everyone at his or her whim. You've already got a great team. Promote from within. Stop overturning the apple cart so often. Let the smart people you already have do their jobs without so much distraction.

Pros: culture, values, people, hours, unlike most financial companies at the end of the day you can still… Cons: pay mediocre, little growth, bureaucracy and red tape abound. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Stable company with good benefits and a positive culture.

I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 10 years


Pros: The client service culture is strong and the employees are treated well. The benefits are generally good and I have found it not… Cons: Like any job, a lot of these reviews are really directed towards someones direct manager. You can have a bad manager at any job.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
