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

Pros

Loved our customers and Charles Schwab is one of my hero's!

Cons

The usual's, management that did not listen.

Advice to Management

Listen! You must have a back up system for employees, especially new ones, to go to when their managers aren't right. There is no employee advocates easily found.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A job, that's it. Some great people but most are depressed and trapped.

    Cons

    Everything else. Pay is awful and they dangle the promise of bonuses in your face then don't pay them. Raises are non-existent. Extremely cheap. All the money flows to the top.

    Advice to Management

    Offer something to your most valuable asset - your staff. Give these hardworking people some stock options. These people deserve way more than they get. Morale is low.
