Good people, but low pay

Associate (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ (US)

ProsGood culture and provides a lot of training. Many career paths to take if you are located in one of the primary service center cities.

ConsLow salary and annual salary increase is terrible. Tell you 2% is standard, and should be grateful in the "current environment".

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more openness with salary info, especially with your own employees. Two people in the same department, working the same job could have a completely different salary. Even it out, and pay people what they deserve.

    Very improved after Pottruck was fired

    Registered Representative II (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ (US)

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: Chuck Schwab and Walt Bettinger seem like the real deal ... sincere in caring about both their employees and their customers. The company has been pretty… Cons: At least when I left there were still several directors that had yet to convert away from the greed of the Pottruck… Advice to Senior Management: Continue to the return back to Chuck Schwab's founding principles. Do more to make employees also Schwab stock holders. Continue weeding out those… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    Began with excitement, ended with despair and awful mid-level managers that couldn't be overcome

    Registered Representative II (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN (US)

    I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: They hire almost anyone with a pulse, decent benefits, pay for… Cons: Everything else. You take about 5,000 calls a year, your whole worth to the company depends on about 30-40 of those calls that are graded.… Advice to Senior Management: Anyone with half a brain could make positive changes here, but it does not seem tobe something that management wants to address. They like to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
