What people are saying about Charles Schwab

Financial Advisors



Managing Principal

We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

      Schwab is a company that truly cares about the customer experience. This value is a driving factor from all levels within the company. Really exciting and fulfilling place to work.


      Certain organizations seem to focus most of their energy deflecting blame rather than moving forward, but they’re rare. Loud, but rare.

      Assistant Director of Education and Training

      Just finished an application to a university that required me to enter all my work experience twice. First under employer history then AGAIN under work history. I am hoping no one else is that persistent or stubborn and I will be the only applicant! Oh, and you had to attach your resume too.
