Working here could be so much better

Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsStability, decent benefits (in line with industry), generally good work-life balance,

ConsHighly political environment. Big and slow moving. Very conservative and so lots of red tape. Each day appears filled with endless presentations about what we're going to do and not many people actually doing the work. Yet everyone seems to have to justify their job by constantly complaining about how busy they are

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more promotion from within. Be more aggressive with progress and more ruthless with the disruptive employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Client Banking Representative (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for less than a year

    Pros: Company offers good quality work stability without much differentiation within your work day. Clients for the most part are easy to deal with and… Cons: The first thing one has to realize about Charles Schwab is that they are inherently conservative about how they do business. This is reflective… Advice to Senior Management: As much as you place emphasis on the client experience and going above and beyond for the client do the same for your employees. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
