Featured Review

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Charles Schwab full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

A strong culture of respect, support, and kindness provides a foundation for every employee at Schwab. I appreciate the thoughtful way Schwab approaches all aspects of employee development and care.... I feel like my manager is an advocate who thinks about and works to secure my future. Schwab ERGs allow me to be involved in things that matter to me, including supporting equity for Black and LGBTQ Americans. Schwab demonstrates the best of what corporate America can be.

Cons

Schwab is working towards more diversity at the executive committee level, but, objectively, it's not there yet. I would love to see Schwab further commit to environmental responsibility--and demand... it of vendors (like the Schwab Cafe). There is some good effort there, but this is an opportunity to lead that aligns with Schwab's orientation toward planning and preparing for the future. I would like to see only organic gardening practices on site (no damaging herbicides or pesticides), re-use of our own composting, reliance on reusing dishes and silverware (removal of plastic options), and investing in renewable energy infrastructure (solar, wind, geothermal) on campuses.
