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

Pros

All the benefits. Good company culture.

Cons

No budget for training and development. You are on your own, Bad attitudes abound, but maybe thats just the overall culture of US companies. Its not OK to say "I dont know".
Lots of influx from India and jobs going there as well. We will see how that works out.

Advice to Management

Start defining what people need to do - define their job and providing the resources for them to do it.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance and flexibility. There are a lot of nice, hard working people working as associates, some weaknesses in middle management, and some intelligent hard working people in the more senior roles.

    Cons

    Salaries are not as competitive as other companies. Hard to move up - tend to get stuck in a position and management doesn't seem to set career goals.

    Advice to Management

    It is better to have less smart people and pay them more than to just keep hiring mediocre people at mediocre salaries.
