I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Client focused, values driven, great products and services, good client facing technology, great value for clients.

Cons

Sr. Management focus on clients and shareholder is out of balance relative to employees, causing low morale and an uncertain future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find the right balance between all three constituents or your quality employees will leave

    Not the same company, now cookie cutter just like rest of the call center financial firms in Phoenix.

    Pros

    Their insatiable appetite to make decisions based on the bottom line and low level managers being low level across the board forced me to find myself and find a much better way.

    Cons

    Too many to list if you have a soul. Any time spent here will certainly compromise anything positive that you believe in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue....bunch of clowns....people are not stupid or stuck. Leveraging poor job market scare tactics to have their way and think they can make all the rules. Stop hiring people to post all the positive comments on Glassdoor. I've been on the inside, I know the truth....it's a joke but only funny in hindsight. Very sad for the many people that I know still there.

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

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience, especially for young professionals starting out in the industry.

    Cons

    Unless you work at corporate headquarters in San Francisco, advancement opportunities are fairly limited. The sharks climbing the corporate ladder in SF HQ pretty much view the branches and branch employees only as fodder for whatever hair-brained schemes & plans they come up with in their attempts to advance their own agenda / careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your ivory towers and visit the employees in the branches and service centers more often, and with a genuine attitude that you can learn from them instead of viewing yourselves as the hot-shot corporate know-it-alls.
