Pros

The people at Schwab work together as a team to serve the customers. This extends to the IT organizations as well. The founder's core value and vision are clear to the company. The best perks are the sabbatical and access to complimentary financial planning.

Cons

Over the years, the company decreases the benefits to all the employees but the bar keep going up. They want the best people but don't compensate them with the best salaries or benefits. People are dispensable as the company decided to move another 1000 jobs away from San Francisco, leaving only jobs related to the header quarter in SF. This follows all the other jobs they moved outside of SF a few years ago.

    Pros

    Great culture and nice people work here. Found some life-long career buddies here. If you are looking for a firm that really believes that they help the public, then look no further. These guys invented it.

    Cons

    Bonus structure and abundance of mid-level managers offer a stagnant CYA corporate environment. This is due to the size of the organization.
