Sweatshop, cheap, avoid.

Senior Equity Trader (Current Employee)
Englewood, CO

I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: A job, that's it. Some great people but most are… Cons: Everything else. Pay is awful and they dangle the promise of bonuses in your face… Advice to Senior Management: Offer something to your most valuable asset - your staff. Give these hardworking people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Huge letdown.

Registered Representative (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

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


Pros: For recent graduates, or individuals looking to get into the finance industry, Schwab provides free training and licensing;… Cons: For experienced individuals it will be the longest, most frustrating career you will have. Knowledgable about investing? Trading strategies? Have great ideas? Passionate about trading… Advice to Senior Management: Listen and respond to what your employees and clients are saying. Bring your applications and platforms into the 21st century. Provide better opportunities for growth… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
