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

    Pros

    Sabbatical is a good benefit. They also pay you on time.

    Cons

    This place might be better than a North Korean labor camp, but it is certainly awful. I utterly detest this company and can’t wait to resign. It might be a good fit for those missing the ultra strict rule of middle school, but it’s awful for adults. Love micromanagement? You’ll feel right at home here. This is also a good place if you love 1990s technology held together by duct tape. For all other professionals, run... far away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money upgrading technology. Don’t allow workplace harassment. Quit trying to rig the results of the engagement survey, you know people hate it here.

    I worked at Charles Schwab

    Pros

    Customer service driven company with positive results year after year as demonstrated by their financials.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company began its cultural demise when new leadership stepped in for Chuck when he retired. Now the company has lost its culture, employees are being asked to move to several parts of the country as they diminish their footprint in the Bay Area. Not many people are taking their offer. What they have ended up with is a workforce who is demoralized and is there only to get a paycheck without energy... to spend anymore time in the office than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership - Now that you have reduced the SF footprint, reduced medical, reduced square footage, reduced disability insurance, reduced unemployment benefits, reduced the morale and culture of your employees, can you please listen to your managers who are desperately trying to get your attention to stop the madness!

    I worked at Charles Schwab for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Schwab always treats their employees fairly and equally. They have a great benefits package and offer a wide variety of continuing educational classes. I felt very comfortable providing my opinions and suggestions.

    Cons

    During my last year of employment, there was a general feeling of unrest within my office. There were several changes made that employees were unhappy with, including moving certain departments out of state. It made most employees feel insecure about their jobs.
