    "Schwab is a great company, just but a call center job is a stressful dead end"

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere and well communicated expectations. The benefits at Schwab are as good as any large corporation and the pay was about right.

    Cons

    Any call center job is very difficult to move out of. You compete with about 800 other reps and any move you make out of your role in the call center will likely translate to a lateral move or a pay increase to another job on the phones. It is extremely difficult to move into a branch or sales role. I personally knew many people who were in the call center between 5 and 10 years without getting out. Bonus payouts are extremely low and frustrating. Sales through service is pushed with no real incentive.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest topic that most reps talk about when management is not around is the need for an improved bonus payout system. Sales became an increasing focus over time with no offer to be paid for your sales. The minimum was unacceptable and there is constant pressure from the top down with little payout. I heard that certain directors were unprofessional in manager meetings and put big pressure on managers to perform.
