    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    They take their employees seriously and invest a lot into helping the employees grow and thrive.

    Conservative company, can be a little slow to execute on ideas. Patience is important.

    Advice to Management

    Allow a distributed/remote workforce for the roles where it's appropriate. It will open up new skilled people for your ranks.
