Pros

Fast-paced. Fun, never a dull moment. Always learning something new. Paid sabbatical every 5th year!

Cons

Pay is so-so. Can't advance unless you are licensed (to be expected)

    Pros

    Great people producing really good work. Management is supportive and knowledgeable. The offices are decent and the cafeteria is really good (but overpriced). Overall a really good place to work

    Cons

    A large portion of people are technically full-time, in-house contract workers instead of employees, which saved Schwab money at your expense. Contract people come and go, often as a result of fluctuating budgets and through no fault of their own, so many people never get confident that they are going to be there long, so it's very unnerving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the practice of signing so many people to contracts. If they seem like a good asset, hire them. It's borderline unethical.

    Pros

    This was one of my first jobs out of grad school and the culture is greta. The human resources element is taken very seriously and the culture is supportive.

    Cons

    retail is hard and depending on the location, if you work at a branch the public can be very difficult. The money is not top tier but then again, its a bank not an iBank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the junior stars to move up faster.
