All in all I was happy w/ my employment at Schwab. It could've been improved though--the firm has had too many changes.

Vice President, Financial Consultant (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

ProsFlexibility, 1 month paid sabbatical for every 5 years of service, work/life balance, clear infrastructure & easy navigation throughout different departments, positive corporate culture

ConsWay too many changes to objectives and the comp plan for financial consultants, an HR department that doesn't have the back of employees but is strictly there to protect management, poor compensation for overall responsibilities, poor identity of branch talent, lack of diversity

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not the best for Financial Consultants

    Financial Consultant (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great for clients that are self directed. Many tools and… Cons: Horrible if you are a Financial Connsultant. They pull you in 10 different directions at the same time and the pay… Advice to Senior Management: Eliminate the good old boy club and start hiring talent… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
