I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I worked in a branch in Chicago, our flagship branch in fact. Reasonable hours

Cons

Management is inept, allot of favoritism. I was one of the top producers in that branch, in fact I moved almost $100,000,000 into Advised Investing over 3 years. As you can imagine that was quite a hard thing to do. Once the pace slowed down I was managed out and had to quit verses getting fired. I left in 2007 actually, before the market crash. I told my manager I was going to begin telling clients to get out of the market, and I was told I couldn't do that, and look what happened in 2008. They dont care about their clients stay away.

Advice to Management

They wont take advice anyway, why should I waste my breath.

    Pros

    Great learning ground! Offers variety of different software platforms. Cultural acceptance and very nice office atmosphere +work life balance

    Cons

    No frequent salary hikes ! It is always that senior staffs are valued more, and they are indispensable My advice--Move from Schwab and come back later!
