Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at Charles Schwab

Pros

- lots of experienced engineers willing to help you learn - Flexible hours / time off - Personal selection of job position - Good working atmosphere

Cons

- a very small company which can have limited employee opportunities to grow - quite far out of the city, can be hard to get to everyday

Advice to Management

- great access to upper management discussions and available of personal insight on career opportunities - Screening process for interns should be a little tighter, some interns have low motivation... and perform poorly

Current Employee - Financial Advisor

I have been working at Edward Jones full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Independent IIROC regulated firm means that Financial Advisors can buy the whole universe of Stocks/Bonds/ETF’s/Mutual Funds for clients.

Cons

Edward Jones doesn’t have a banking division that can feed prospective clients to Financials Advisors. FA’s must build the business themselves

Advice to Management

Stay a private partnership and keep the focus on clients rather than maximizing profits at all costs.
