    Pros

    Great teamwork. You'll get a lot of recognition for a job well done. Very good about work/life balance. They empower you to do what's right for the client.

    Cons

    Low pay; have be on the phones for a while before you can move into another area. A little bit like a sweatshop.

    I worked at Charles Schwab as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Full-time employees had great benefits.
    The cafeteria was excellent and well-priced.
    I was allowed pretty flexible hours.
    The pay was good.

    Cons

    It was a pretty typical corporate environment.
    There was a bit too much middle management, who I'm not sure ever actually did anything.
