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

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.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (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.
