Working at Schwab is not for the faint of heart.

Managing Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsTime passes quickly because there is so much work to do because most departments are understaffed; employees have very strong work ethic and want to do the right thing for Schwab's clients.

ConsFew opportunities for movement for existing employees in San Francisco; few promotional opportunities for director level employees; culture does not promote work/life balance; leadership priorities change often leaving everyone scrambling; frequent organizational restructures with little regard for employee skills, experience, career interest or desires; only the projects deemed"sexy"receive recognition with monetary reward heavily weighted towards those leading them;

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
