    Pros

    You get paid to get abused

    Cons

    You get micro-management not only on a daily basis but every hour on the hour, talk about favoritism, you could be gone for 6 weeks or longer and get a nice bonus for not doing your work as others did it for you. Middle management is only there to look out for them selves and not you. Currently you see a lot of headlines about Paula Dean, well what goes on inside of Schwab is far worse then that. I know first hand and have witnessed managers intentionally disrespect other religions like Muslims, Jewish as well as atheist and what is sad HR direct does nothing to protect these people they only protect managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    mid managers must go too many bigots

    Pros

    Disciplined, financially prudent and ethical. Quality people and diversified product offerings.

    Cons

    Uninspiring leadership and way too many employees retired in place. Fun is limited as are pay and bonuses. Trying to innovate, but legacy behaviors and systems make this challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rally the troops with a clear and aligned strategy. Toss the dead weight. Don't be so grumpy, loosen the ties and purse strings and have some fun! If you want engagement, be engaged.
