    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.

    Great company. Lazy, un-motivated, dull management...

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
