    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.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in a branch in Chicago, our flagship branch in fact.
    Reasonable hours

    Cons

    Management is inept, allot of favoritism. I was one of the top producers in that branch, in fact I moved almost $100,000,000 into Advised Investing over 3 years. As you can imagine that was quite a hard thing to do. Once the pace slowed down I was managed out and had to quit verses getting fired. I left in 2007 actually, before the market crash. I told my manager I was going to begin telling clients to get out of the market, and I was told I couldn't do that, and look what happened in 2008. They dont care about their clients stay away.

    Advice to Management

    They wont take advice anyway, why should I waste my breath.
