    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This company tries to do the right thing on all fronts more than others I've experienced. It's a place that believes in the value and importance of the products and services it provides and the quality of the experience for its clients as well as employees. It is well-managed.

    Cons

    As part of the financial services industry it is saddled with some of what you might expect: tough regulations that are well-intentioned but make things more bureacratic than may seem ideal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep thinking long term.

    All in all I was happy w/ my employment at Schwab. It could've been improved though--the firm has had too many changes.

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, 1 month paid sabbatical for every 5 years of service, work/life balance, clear infrastructure & easy navigation throughout different departments, positive corporate culture

    Cons

    Way too many changes to objectives and the comp plan for financial consultants, an HR department that doesn't have the back of employees but is strictly there to protect management, poor compensation for overall responsibilities, poor identity of branch talent, lack of diversity
