    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working at Charles Schwab helped develop consistance, conservation and fostered a team enviroment while learning to work individually.

    Cons

    The pay scale was a bit low after working 8 years with this company. However, stock options were gifted throughout the years and that was a pleasant surprise.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest more one-on-one time with manager and peers to guide employees on their career path. More training to build strengths and encourage one to step outside of their comfort zone.

    Bonus, stock, and merit increases are very good for highly successful empliyees. Company culture is laid back, most folks are very nice.

    Understandable, but investment in technology has been lackluster.

    Invest in internal and external mobile much more.

    Pros

    Amazing company, with a fantastic culture and a genuine environment that encourages personal and professional growth. The company works hard to help employees achieve a productive work/life balance, and doesn't set unrealistic goals that few employees are capable of achieving. Lots of benefits for the employees, their families, and personal retirement.

    Cons

    Low starting salary for the amount of work an employee will be doing once they are licensed brokers.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are nice (paid time off, holidays, stock purchase plans). There are plenty of opportunities for advancement no matter what department you are in. Plenty of different shifts to be put on at call centers. Compensation seems appropriate.

    Cons

    If your position is to work on the phones, every single minute of your day is strictly scheduled for you. Your lunch is only 30 minutes long (but they do give you two 15 minute breaks). Managers can be hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    More leniency with time on the phones. Even with the other 15 minute breaks a 30 minute lunch is a joke.
