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

    Pros

    The company truly believes in what they stand for - integrity and treating clients with the utmost respect..Doesn't always mean the client is correct but Schwab will do anything to try and make it work for the client. Its a great company with great benefits, and very easy to advance within the company.

    Cons

    Before I left they started making changes to the requirements for advancement - the biggest was needing to be in a position for 18 months while other departments could maintain a position for 6 - 12 months before leaving that department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your representatives, they know the clients -- follow what Chuck has set fourth for the company and it will continue to succeed.
