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

    Pros

    Good reputation and respected brand, one month paid sabbatical after 5 years, very good 401k with employer match.

    Cons

    Very low base salary for experienced licensed professionals and very low bonus payout. Micromanagement to the extreme. Outdated and cumbersome technology.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your professionals, who are providing clients help and guidance and financial planning, a better salary and quit changing the compensation plan every year. It is ridiculous that reactive call center reps are compensated better on sales than your branch personnel who are expected to be proactive sales people.

    Pros

    Not micro-management on daily basis.

    Cons

    Are you an ass-kisser or politically correct? No? Then career is stuck in neutral.
