I worked at Charles Schwab as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

collaborative team effort. good benefits. at your own initiative you can develop and grow your career path. everybody is very approachable from managers, business partners, tech support and change management staff.

Cons

lots of politics at the higher level but if you are in a non-managerial position you're position should be safe unless the economy is really bad .

Advice to Management

eliminate politics if possible.

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

    Pros

    The biggest pros are the benefits and 401k match. The benefits are top notch in the industry and its tough to beat the 401k match at 5% of salary.

    Cons

    The base salaries are low and it seems like Schwab would rather pay little and "groom" their employees rather than hiring more qualified individuals at a higher base pay.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great for clients that are self directed. Many tools and excellent website

    Cons

    Horrible if you are a Financial Connsultant. They pull you in 10 different directions at the same time and the pay is poor. They are changing compensation and is going to be even worse unless you live in one of the bigger markets.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the good old boy club and start hiring talent from outside Schwab.
