    I have been working at Charles Schwab

    Pros

    I really can't think of anything.

    Cons

    Very competitive environment, especially among senior management. They focus on impressing each other as opposed to customer service. Management points fingers instead of taking responsibility in order to make themselves look good. Employees are expected to work long hours, including weekends, and pay is below average for the industry. Company culture is very stiff and employees are always nervous about losing their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives should carefully review mid-high level management results to ensure they benefit customers, as opposed to their own reputations, and ratings/salary levels should reflect that goal. High performing employees should not be penalized if they lose clients through no fault of their own. Management needs to invest in employee training, coaching, and mentoring.

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

    Pros

    the building is clean and has good location in phoenix

    Cons

    too many things to list, too much negativity that this post would get deleted, don't even bother. No loyalty to loyal employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you guys are going to be screwed in 10-15 years but by then you'll be gone so who cares.
