    StarStarStarStarStar Current Financial Services Professional in Austin, Texas

    Benefits are comprehensive and costs are fairly shared between employer and employee. There are health incentives that, if met, result in extra funding for your HSA account, thereby motivating folks to achieve better health, which results in better financial support.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Financial Services Professional in Westlake, Texas

    It was standard company benefits. The sabbatical is a month long after 5 years of service. Vested immediately in 401k. Med ins. was kinda expensive.

    Minimum Paid vacation, holidays, and sick days. But at least offered. Even just taking vacation is frowned upon however. 401K is okay, but considering that is Schwab's core, it's measly. Worst is the health insurance. Not a good package.

    Good benefits but more expensive than competitors

    They have a good stock option plan. 15% discount. It can really add up and be an additional bonus or retire option. It’s done every quarter. Con: of course the taxes if you sell when you get them but also can only put so much into that purchase also

    Schwab has recently added some nice new Benefits- like 6-weeks paid Maternity leave for Moms, and even paid Paternity leave for Dads.

    health benefits, good 401 k match, stock purchase options, sabbatical

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Austin, Texas

    5% match 100% vested - you're not going to find a better 401(k). Health is very good with a $1k deposit to your HSA for families. PTO is average but you get good sick leave and that sabbatical in 5 years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Resolution Manager in Phoenix, Arizona

    Excellent 401k with 5% match. Employee Stock Purchase Plan allows you to buy company stock at a 15% discount each quarter. Compensation was excellent with quarterly and annual bonuses based on company and personal performance. Occasional stock options (rarely, but it still happened). Health benefits were weak. High deductible plan with a $5,800.00 out of pocket max (family). 1 month sabbatical after 5 years with the company. 8 hours PTO every month, 6 hours sick time every month. Excellent Maternity and Paternity leave program. Tuition reimbursement program was great. They will also pay for you to get licensed within the industry.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in El Paso, Texas

    Best thing would be the employee 401k match and the employee discounts. A lot of different services offered for any type of personal situation.
