Steady as she goes

Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsGood work life balance on the Institutional side of the business.
Opportunities to take advantage of career development.
Nice and competent coworkers.
Schwab is a respected name in San Francisco and beyond.

ConsSometimes I found decision making to be slow.
Because the pace of work is fairly predictable, there isn't much excitement after you've figured out your job.
Co-workers can be overly formal.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Think of ways to reward employee innovation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Waiting for interest rates to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
