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

Pros

The people I worked with were very nice people. Charles Schwab is a community oriented company. The hours were standard corporate hours with opportunities for overtime. The training given was also a plus.

Cons

Internal politics controlled the office, and it was hard to change things.

Advice to Management

Loyalty should be rewarded more generously.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good colleagues, decent benefits

    Cons

    Frequent re-organizations make progress difficult as knowledge is moved around without real regard to success of the company. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a real broker dealer, you have to start acting like one.


  2. "The company with solid core values"

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    The people at Schwab work together as a team to serve the customers. This extends to the IT organizations as well. The founder's core value and vision are clear to the company. The best perks are the sabbatical and access to complimentary financial planning.

    Cons

    Over the years, the company decreases the benefits to all the employees but the bar keep going up. They want the best people but don't compensate them with the best salaries or benefits. People are dispensable as the company decided to move another 1000 jobs away from San Francisco, leaving only jobs related to the header quarter in SF. This follows all the other jobs they moved outside of SF a few years ago.
