Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Some great people work there.
Salaries are good.
Sabbatical!

Cons

Politics rule.
It's an "old boy" company, whether it looks like it or not...
The push to move people out of San Francisco is stronger than the idea of keeping good employees.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time

    Pros

    Schwab offers thorough training that prepares you to perform your duties confidently and professionally. Employees are encouraged/required to get additional certifications. The company is extremely ethical and emphasizes the client's needs.

    Cons

    Company marketing initiatives and campaigns are constantly changing and rolled out too frequently. The compensation structure is complex and consists of too many variables/inputs. Quarterly targets are often set too high with seemingly little regard for the demographics of the individual branches.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the compensation structure.
