Featured Review

Current Employee - Participant Services Associate

I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time

Pros

So far with my work at Schwab, I’ve only encountered positive colleagues who strive to help everyone around them grow. Thorough coaching, 1:1 time, and other developmental meetings have been common... and provide us with a sense of purpose and direction for our careers. This is a great entry level position for anyone wanting to get their toes wet in the world of finance, or simply advance their career at Schwab.

Cons

Some of the resources, as well as the software can be a bit confusing at times.

Current Employee - Trade Specialist

I have been working at TD Ameritrade full-time

Pros

Very great place to work all around love it!

Cons

None that I can think of other than it being a call center type job so it can get repetitive from time to time but they do a good job of trying to mix it up for you

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing
