Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schwab is number one I've been a Schwab customer since college graduation, and the features, benefits, and employees have made a great impact on my financial life. The convenience, guidance, and value that my Schwab account gives me is unparalleled to any other financial institution. The Schwab mobile app is easy to use and has great features. The live chat feature in the website is wonderful. The ETF and mutual fund select list make it easy to start investing, even while on a budget! The products and diversity of accounts Schwab offers are amazing, and the ability to integrate these into their web and mobile services is a huge benefit! Most of all, the help and advice I receive from online investing events, and the guidance from my local branch have made me a promoter of this company, and a customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Managing my Roth As a non-professional, small investor, I have relied on tools and data found in Schwab site for my portfolio management. Survived a couple of crises and enjoyed coming back into the green. Every question was answered and every request graciously granted by you professional staff. What else can anyone expect from a broker?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not always available Schwab is an all around great brokerage in all respects. Except Information Technology. For some reason they think its OK to shut down certain customer services on Sunday morning - like at 850 AM EDT on 9/29/13, for example. Schwab is a mission critical system to some of us. "Rolling" fixes, deployments, backups, etc are done throughout industry to eliminate user/customer impact. Dont know whether this is every Sun or not, but I've experienced this several times a year. Hey, Schwab IT guys, please get with the program!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to Excellent Schwab does a great job with processing trades and transactions. Personnel are professional, informed and helpful. It would be nice if you could make global changes to any or all accounts in a single step. The retirement planning help available is top notch. The thing that is most annoying is that for funds kept in cash the returns available are low. This forces me to link accounts to other accounts outside of Schwab to get even meager returns instead of near 0 returns inside of Schwab. It makes me do more transactions than I should have to and it takes my money and puts it in another institution. A win win would be better rates for me and more money inside Schwab for you.
