    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 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 depressed and trapped.

    Cons

    Everything else. Pay is awful and they dangle the promise of bonuses in your face then don't pay them. Raises are non-existent. Extremely cheap. All the money flows to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer something to your most valuable asset - your staff. Give these hardworking people some stock options. These people deserve way more than they get. Morale is low.
