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

Pros

Good work life balance on the Institutional side of the business.
Opportunities to take advantage of career development.
Nice and competent coworkers.
Schwab is a respected name in San Francisco and beyond.

Cons

Sometimes I found decision making to be slow.
Because the pace of work is fairly predictable, there isn't much excitement after you've figured out your job.
Co-workers can be overly formal.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Think of ways to reward employee innovation.
