Pros

Schwab offers thorough training that prepares you to perform your duties confidently and professionally. Employees are encouraged/required to get additional certifications. The company is extremely ethical and emphasizes the client's needs.

Cons

Company marketing initiatives and campaigns are constantly changing and rolled out too frequently. The compensation structure is complex and consists of too many variables/inputs. Quarterly targets are often set too high with seemingly little regard for the demographics of the individual branches.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simplify the compensation structure.
