      Pros

      Great company. Good benefits and extras. Very open to new employee ideas. Room for growth and deveoplment.

      Cons

      Reactive versus Proactive. Decisions made from the top without thought of impact at the bottom. Top is on a different page then the bottom, which sends mixed messages.

      Mixed Experience at Schwab

      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Licensing assistance. Good benefits. Industry name. The size of the company allows for exposure to different aspects of the business. Ability to network.

      Cons

      Stressful work environment. Lack of work/life balance. Management turnaround in recent years at top positions causing changes in business direction. Employees are not as supported to be themselves and do their best work.

      Great Company to Work For

      Oct 13, 2020 - Participant Services Specialist in Austin, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Schwab is a values-driven company with a great culture and good benefits. Employees and clients alike are well taken care of.

      Cons

      Entry level roles can feel "entrapping" even as a top performer. I've been a top candidate for several positions but ultimately it's difficult to build skills that transfer beyond client-facing roles especially if you are on the phone all the time.
