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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance.
    People are supportive and non-competitive.
    Great for those looking for non-challenging long-term career.
    Nice perks.

    Cons

    Passive-aggressive behaviors; no one says "no";
    IT infrastructure is a mess and Mac support is lacking. What is this, 2004?
    Marketing is not integrated and way behind the curve in terms of modern, social web.
    Inadequate support for user-centered design practices.
    Takes forever to get anything done because of so many layers and departments.

    Advice to Management

    In terms of digital marketing, hire more fresh blood with solid digital agency experience. CS should be split into digital and non-digital groups.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can learn one aspect of the industry there. Very all inclusive company in terms of all the services offered.

    Cons

    Management treats their employees awful. Micromangement is rampant. They continually raise your goals to the point where no one can achieve them (Unless you are one of the chosen few who will fast track up the ladder). Not the company that I hired in with years ago. When I have discussions about investing with new people I meet I recommend they do not do business with Schwab due to the poor treatment of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Stop being so self-serving and treat your employees with respect and share the wealth of success like the old days.
