I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

the checks don't bounce and Schwab is committed to at least keeping up the appearance that they are forward thinking

Cons

it's no place to be if you have any kind of ambition

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead. Spend fewer hours holding monthly 1:1 's and more thinking of ways you could improve our company.

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

    Pros

    The people you will work with are great - esp those in our service centers. Benefits overall are pretty good. Stable job. They still offer a 1 month sabbatical every 5 years of service.

    Cons

    Salaries are low, expect extremely small increases each year - 2% is pretty standard but with inflation and cost of health insurance increasing each year you'll see no real increase in your salary - maybe $20/payperiod. No real room for advancement especially if you are in a branch and not near one of our larger service centers. Bonus is a joke. I was told it was 15% of your salary when I was hired. I get about 5%. There is also this wacky thing where as your salary increases your bonus goes down bc they "want everyone across the country in the same position to make about the same money". But my coworkers make almost twice what I do bc they have been here forever. The bonus I get doesn't fill the gap between my salary and theirs.
