Pros

Top notch technology and systems. The back office personnel are excellent and there are great resources available to find information quickly. Products and Managed Accounts are very cheap for the clients, so it is easy to sell what Schwab has to offer.

Cons

It is a large corporation and does not necessarily value constructive criticism of the processes that have been set in place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the Financial Consultants, compensation is very difficult to track and understand.

    Pros

    Schwab is very particular about the worker that they hire. They will not only test your skills, but your personality and fit for culture as well. Benefits are generous, although there is very little if any tuition reimbursement. VERY good work and life balance. Ample opportunity for advancement. Senior leaders are very smart, tuned in, and actually care. All of them answer e-mail. Will your CEO answer an e-mail with a well thought-out answer that you send him? Walt will.

    Cons

    Pay can be slightly below market in some areas. Company re-organizes frequently which can be confusing. You must be able to prioritize and juggle many projects at once. Lots of drive-by and last minute "this must be done now" requests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is great because it's full of smart, talented people. Schwab is a huge target of head hunters looking to steal your greatest assets. Keep this in mind when computing bonus payout percentages.
