Good place to work but the pay barely covers the mortgage.

I worked at Charles Schwab

Pros

Great benefits
Friendly atmosphere
"Team oriented" is not an empty phrase
Good social environment
Decent work/life balance
For the social activist, pushes the limits of benefits and work environment for the gay community. (But there's speculation that Bettinger might start slowly changing this).

Cons

Hands out titles like loose change and pays about as much. Pay is below median.
Managers are uncommitted to the success of their employees. HIres too many temporary consultants who leave after a few months.
Work standards can be low and some people don't know how to use common applications. Some employees need help with basic Excel functions like lookups or adding columns.
Big hit to morale because of push to decentralize work from SF to Florida, Arizona, New Jersey, Denver, and other places.
For those interested in subjective rumors, Bettinger brings a culture of nepotism, conservatism, and ruthless bottom-line cost-cutting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revamp pay policies and entitlements to titles.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, the new modern biz casual (nice jeans, untucked shirts... on guy has a trimmed mo-hawk and tat's!) awesome equipment.. I have to 24" flat screens, a terabyte hard drive 8 gigs of ram (expandable to 16) etc, etc a PC for developing testing, clean offices, great people.

    Cons

    So far, there isn't any. Unless you live really far south since they have moved to off the 183.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep your dynamic growing strategy and listening to those who actually produce.
