    I worked at Charles Schwab for less than a year

    Pros

    The program was designed very well for a summer internship. They give you a lot of time to explore your own interests and get to know high-level management while also digging into the specific business unit that you work for. The people at Schwab are great and they really give you a feel for what it would be like to work there full-time.

    Cons

    No specific cons from the program.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the internship program!

    I worked at Charles Schwab for less than a year

    Pros

    Good employee benefits, friendly and supportive company culture.

    Cons

    You are expected to complete a great deal of work outside the workplace on your own time. Salaries are comparatively lower than other financial services firms. Compensation does not take cost of living in to account.

    Advice to Management

    When giving financial presentations to employees, make sure the examples reflect employee's actual, not aspirational, salaries and expenses.

    Pros

    Inclusive environment and culture where people are willing to help you learn. Access to the Bloomberg Terminal while working for the securities lending department in San Francisco

    Cons

    Stresses work life balance and at times is not the most demanding. Could be periods of light work.

    Advice to Management

    Have more collaborative projects for intern groups. Otherwise, keep the intern academy going strong!

  9. "Great Company, Slightly Boring"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Former Intern - Intern Marketing in Austin, TX

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Charles Schwab for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at the company truly is so open to talking to interns and sharing their experiences. Schwab offers outstanding compensation for interns and the opportunity to network with people very high up in the company if you are willing to reach out. Company culture is all about teamwork and "knowing your strengths," and it is very easy for intern classes to form close friendships.

    Cons

    In my experience, it seemed that many employees and interns were in roles that were so specific they would get extremely tedious. Personally, my work as a marketing intern was more or less a role that anyone could have done and I was not given enough work to occupy that majority of my time.

    Advice to Management

    Trust that your interns can handle more responsibility.

    I have been working at Charles Schwab for less than a year

    Pros

    Interns are treated better than full-time employees. Good Pay. They have the intention of hiring you.

    Cons

    Interns are either overworked or have nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more guest speakers for the academy events. Better preparation for those
