    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 Management

    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.


  2. Decent place to start a financial career.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good training in the beginning and a good introduction to the financial services industry. Co-workers are mostly helpful and engaged.

    Cons

    Poor starting salary. Very little chance of advancement unless you want another phone job. Management changes direction often and seems to have very little direction.
