Advice to Management

Over time Schwab seems to have lost its edge. Before I voluntarily left the company, morale was low and there seemed to be much less innovation and sense of loyalty among the employees. I hope that has changed.

    Pros

    Studio manager was good, close proximity to coffee shops, transit, friendly and loose atmosphere. Many friendships formed, nobody watching over the shoulder.

    Cons

    Middle management in marketing department had little management aptitude. Long and regular meetings without apparent purpose. Most "schwabbies", as they liked to call employee, seem to be there because they couldn't find work elsewhere. Little concern for creative graphic design. Average age older than in ad agencies. Very stingy with things like coffee. Un-San Francisco feel.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and learn to manage more creative-types? The "Talk to Chuck" campaign is wearing thin.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, the new modern biz casual (nice jeans, untucked shirts... on guy has a trimmed mo-hawk and tat's!) awesome equipment.. I have to 24" flat screens, a terabyte hard drive 8 gigs of ram (expandable to 16) etc, etc a PC for developing testing, clean offices, great people.

    Cons

    So far, there isn't any. Unless you live really far south since they have moved to off the 183.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep your dynamic growing strategy and listening to those who actually produce.
