Pros

Culture very pro-employee. Still has a strong brand and looks good on the resume.

Cons

The culture! Can be hard to get anything done as a new person there. You're always swimming upstream, and outside/different viewpoints are not always heard.

Advice to Management

You're not running a day care center or kindergarden. Adults need to be treated like adults, and it is a professional business that warrants accountability.

    Pros

    They are very flexible with your schedule & time off. They have a great bonus program and great benefits package. There is always quick communication between senior management & employees. The opportunity for growth is sky high. It just depends on the employee. Schwab provides all the necessary training for free, so there is no excuse to be left behind.

    Cons

    There are only two locations in Phoenix, and they are right by each other so if you live in another city, its quite a commute.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are doing a great job so far.

    Pros

    Charles Schwab is a company that believes in the satisfaction of their employees. The company works with individual employees when personal situations come up. They will give time off beyond what is allowed for family emergencies and personal health issues. The benefits package is also very nice. Schwab is also a company that is commited to their clients and making sure that they have a good experience each and every time they interact with the firm.

    Cons

    Some downsides to working at Schwab are that the wages are not that high when starting out and it takes a while to move up the pay charts. It's also is hard to move up within your own department, you really will have to move to another department to take a management position.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Senior Management would be to work on the technology of the firm. The infrastructure currently set up is outdated and it makes working on everyday tasks hard because the computers are slow. I would also suggest to them to continue moving towards improving the internet trading platforms that they currently have. The future is the interent and not broker trading.
