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

    Pros

    Good work life balance and flexibility. There are a lot of nice, hard working people working as associates, some weaknesses in middle management, and some intelligent hard working people in the more senior roles.

    Cons

    Salaries are not as competitive as other companies. Hard to move up - tend to get stuck in a position and management doesn't seem to set career goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is better to have less smart people and pay them more than to just keep hiring mediocre people at mediocre salaries.
