Account Solutions Administrator (Current Employee) –  El Paso, TXOctober 17, 2018
I enjoy working here at Schwab, but I do feel there is room for improvements. Pay for the lower grades is definitely a must, working with some managers is another. All in all great company with great benefits.

Senior Estate and Trust Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 15, 2018
Most enjoyable part of the job is assisting clients with their needs.
Management is hit or miss. Some excellent managers, some not as effective.
It was difficult advancing to another position.

A great place to learn and earn unbeatable experience of peace at work
Software Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 12, 2018
Association with Charles Schwab keeps one abreast of innovation at work. The pace of change to embrace newness and technological creativity which each one showcases at work is on par with work culture enforced in top companies.

Unparalleled work-life balance makes one institutionalized to Charles Schwab like a family .
Pros
Adaptive to niche skills of learning

Typical large company
Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 11, 2018
A lot of long tenured staff who do not have a lot of appetite for change or innovation. Lots of red tape inhibiting progress. Middle management mostly concerned with climbing the ladder.

Great company - see recent Bloomberg article
Associate - Administrative Support (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 10, 2018
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-10-02/charles-schwab-on-his-3-6-trillion-edge-on-the-fintechs is a great article that provides a great perspective on the company history. What I will say personally is that it is a very ethical company and we have not had any of the other scandals or bailouts other companies have had to endure.
Pros
Great ethical company
Cons
has moved a lot of jobs out of SF as many other companies have done

Terrific Organization
Client Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Menlo Park, CAOctober 8, 2018
I lucked out with a great location. Schwab has a terrific brand and is a well-run company, all the way through to back office. I had the misfortune of a poor manager, but I believe it was the exception rather than the rule.
Pros
Pride of Employer, steady hours, modern office, great resources & culture
Cons
Low pay for support staff

Client Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 7, 2018
Very repetitive days and adherence is the only thing managers care about because it is reflected on them. Only 30 minutes allowed for lunch. 401k match is nice.
Pros
401k match
Cons
Repetitive

This is a good place to work. Not always the highest pay but not the lowest. I have worked there many years and until recently have been happy. Guess you can get a bad supervisor anywhere!

My thoughts
Associate Brokerage Services (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 1, 2018
The people that work at Schwab are the best part of the job. They have a program to help you gain additional license which is great. Management is held back by upper management which makes the one on one meeting odd.

Comfortable Environment and Good People
Staff - Software QA Engineer (Current Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 1, 2018
Charles Schwab has great people and a comfortable environment with a good work life balance. Working in technology there is very 'reactive' to business needs and you don't always have the autonomy and time to innovate where and how you'd like to as a technology team.

Good employer to work for

Good company overall, pay can be good depending on the department you are in. Company offers sabbaticals every 5 years (4 weeks) and you get money for your HSA every year.

Great place to work, many career opportunities
Corporate Relations Manager (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COSeptember 28, 2018
I held many positions at Charles Schwab Corporation.

Project Manager; Assisted with Oracle based front end application for employee users; touch tone recognition for customers.

Team manager; Stock option department and Retail client services

Financial Advisor Representative; Client Services Representative
Pros
Many opportunities to advance career
Cons
none

great place to work in financial services
Senior Manager, Product Management (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 26, 2018
It's a very ethical company in financial services. Always adapting and evolving, but your experience and satisfaction really depends on the group you're in. They have really scaled back hiring in San Francisco, lots of layoffs. They don't always do a great job at promoting employees. Again, career development and advancement depends on your group and not at all consistent across the company. Pay is below average in the SF Bay Area.
Pros
employee benefits are ok
Cons
career growth, pay below average, old technology systems
