Pros

Loved our customers and Charles Schwab is one of my hero's!

Cons

The usual's, management that did not listen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen! You must have a back up system for employees, especially new ones, to go to when their managers aren't right. There is no employee advocates easily found.

    Pros

    This is a classy organization with access to lots of resources so the business will continue to grow despite the economy.

    Cons

    Survival is key so people tend not to speak up when they see or know of wrongdoings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and encourage employees to be the same where it serves the public and shareholders best interests.
