I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Historically a technology focused company, and still strives to be a technology forerunner.

Cons

Few promotional opportunities. Usual pattern is to give employees more responsibilities without actually granting a promotion or raise.
Management can be inconsistent, some excellent managers, others not so.
