Account Solutions Administrator (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – October 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.
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 .

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.
Great ethical company
has moved a lot of jobs out of SF as many other companies have done

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.
Pride of Employer, steady hours, modern office, great resources & culture
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.

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.
Senior Manager, Product Management (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – September 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.
employee benefits are ok
career growth, pay below average, old technology systems
