    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work experience. Great way to learn the markets.

    Cons

    Call after call after call after call. Very grueling. Nothing is ever discovered or created. Just answering the same questions 500 times. Management is also very dull. Not much ambition and not many 'role models'. Many of my collegues fresh our of school were much more driven and innovative than any of the managers (some of them were smarter too...).

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring something fresh to the team rather than just sitting in your cube and being reactive. Try to be innovative. Try to build something.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, smart - care about the business Good life work balance, mostly because it's the only way to keep talent without increasing comp

    Cons

    Comp is far below market Terrible morale due to low bonuses, no growth - top talent leaving in droves Leaders have zero tolerance to differing points of view Consensus driven to the point of nothing gets done Culture used to be great, now undermined by low morale, penny pinching No career growth

    Advice to Management

    empower talent to innovate invest in fair compensation to keep talent
