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

I worked at Vanguard for more than 3 years

Pros

The management at Vanguard are truly professional and take a great interest in personal development.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about Vanguard. Positive work environment and great people.
