    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Beware 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    culture, values, people, hours, unlike most financial companies at the end of the day you can still look at yourself in the mirror without cringing in horror at what you've done to your clients.

    Cons

    pay mediocre, little growth, bureaucracy and red tape abound.
