    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

    N/A

    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.

    Pros

    laid back yet professional culture works for most. many similar companies pay better but relaxed environment can offset that frustration for some.

    Cons

    typically for career advancement licensing is required. many unspoken rules when seeking new positions. not always the most qualified selected. managers tend only be looking out for themselves

    Advice to Management

    focus on more on employee development beyond generic steps and corporate speak.

    Benefits are good and employees are friendly. Management is trusted and trying to make the company better place to work.

    Cons

    Don't pay a lot and switching to health saving account is one big change they made and many employees including myself don't like it a lot.
