Great place but beware contract

Marketing/Creative (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsGreat people producing really good work. Management is supportive and knowledgeable. The offices are decent and the cafeteria is really good (but overpriced). Overall a really good place to work

ConsA large portion of people are technically full-time, in-house contract workers instead of employees, which saved Schwab money at your expense. Contract people come and go, often as a result of fluctuating budgets and through no fault of their own, so many people never get confident that they are going to be there long, so it's very unnerving.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the practice of signing so many people to contracts. If they seem like a good asset, hire them. It's borderline unethical.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The Worst Place I Have Ever Worked! Potential New Hires Researching the Company: DO NOT ACCEPT!

    Registered Representative (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than a year


    Pros: - Several great coworkers - Good insurance (although apparently this has since been… Cons: - Literally everything else. Management does not care to assist you in your job or on the job learning, although most lack the skills… Advice to Senior Management: There is no point in providing advice. The company gets worse and worse in its treatment to employees. 70%… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
