I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 3 years)

Lots of opportunities to do a lot of work. Great resume builder.

Does not compensate for all of the work that they allow you to do.

Advice to Management

Drop the phony corporate cheerleading and loosen the purse strings.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good vision, product & services; relevant to the marketplace. Legally and ethically sound organization. Promotes diversity in management. Strong group of employees.

    Cons

    If you are hired in below your experience (something that happens to many in this economy) you will almost never advance. Low pay compared to similar jobs with other companies. Culture is very slow to consider or accept change. Lower level managers/directors are more motivated to pace themselves and their teams to extend their job security. Bureaucracy rules and mediocracy is the result.

    Advice to Management

    Ask of each director, "do you have 20 years experience or 1 years experience - 20 times?"

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, generous paid time off.

    Cons

    At Schwab, you will be micro-managed to the inth degree. They don't pay very well either. If you work in the Banking call-center, you will be miserable. I haven't worked there in almost a year and I still have nightmares.
