I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They have 2 days work from home options which is awesome for an employee.

Cons

It used to be great company to work for. Last few years lot of politics from senior management made this company a very bad environment. Pay is miserable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decrease some upper management politics. Employees getting suffered.

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

    Pros

    Nice pay, bonuses, good time off & volunteer opportunities, free covered parking

    Cons

    Management is too afraid to get rid of deadwood. There is a person in my department that does a horrible job, has had multiple complaints against him, makes constant inappropriate remarks and generally offends people on a daily basis. He has been there for years and all management does is talk about moving him to another department. Why does this idiot still have a job when many qualified people do not?

    Also, Management spends too much time playing hot potato. Why is everyone so afraid to take responsibility? Decision making can take YEARS. Yes, YEARS. Ridiculous!

    Also, way too much time is wasted in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Butch up & fire those that deserve it. If a customer complains or if more than one complains, do something about that person! Also, those cubicles are totally 1970s. Give people decent places to work
