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

Pros

focus on career advancement in different parts of the company, whether its upper or lateral

Cons

will not hire with in, don't let go of pursuing your degree if you are not in to financial advising or sales. I don't think my manager knows what a CFA is or how to prepare for one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Utilize the talent that you have hired on the bottom ranks and provide access to different career paths in the company. Your call center teams are comprised with professionals of varying levels of college degrees. Utilize there talents. Not everyone you hire wants to be a Financial Portfolio Manager or an Advisor.

    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.
