Well, that was unexpected. I assume the combined company will lay off people from both sides. Any news from inside either company?
Topics regarding layoffs at Charles Schwab Corp.
I work for TD Amertirade and I wanted to see what Schwab employees expecting to happen as the acquisition is executed. Not sure if you’ve done things like before and if there are any patterns. Any info is welcome. Thanks.
This thread is for info about potential Charles Schwab Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Yet one more rate cut today. Anyone have any info as to future layoffs? I assume there won’t be that Christmas cash or stock bonus like they did the last two years. I assume everyone saw the Forbes article mentioning Chuck gave at least 9 million... — read more
Since the FED has now lowered the interest rates today (.25), and this reduction of 600 employees was noted as necessary several months ago, do you think management will prepare for another round and this time, not let it leak? I have already heard... — read more
This is a master thread about Charles Schwab Layoffs in 2019?
Contractors already selectively being let go. There was a meeting called today, it's being called a surgical layoff. High level officers next then moving down. Ironic since they just brought on USAA staff. No timeframe given but September sounds... — read more
There are still some places that respect their employees and treat them like human beings and assets, not like objects and costs that need cutting. Schwab used to belong to the first group but those days are long gone. One of my former coworkers... — read more
Word I heard today is that the feeling is that Schwab will indeed have another round of layoffs in Q1 or Q2 unless the rates magically rise. Given the climate, that seems impossible. Schwab hitched their wagon to the idea that rates will normalize... — read more

I’ve gotta admit I have spent the last week day drinking and eating pizza and burritos. That isn’t healthy so I know I need to snap back and get my life in order. I’m still in shock, I’m glad I got my sabbatical in at least before the lay-off. I... — read more
Are any rumors circulating? I haven't heard anything.
From what I can see, a large number of laid off people have been with Schwab for 20+ years, were making big bucks (>$100K/year and some were making >$150K/yr), and were probably over the age of 50. This strategy is no different from previous Schwab... — read more
How do you think this will affect us?
Any idea for the total in Phoenix? I'm being told over 60, but this is speculation.
There’s a new hire on my team and someone with years of experience got laid off almost simultaneously. They’re different positions but I’m wondering, how are they hiring still if the whole point of the layoffs is to cut costs?
I work there and i have seen it with my own eyes. They dont care about their employees. They make that painfully clear every day. They keep outsourcing and laying off people, yet the work remains the same and their employees have become burnt out... — read more
I plan to come home and walk my dog. Eat lunch with my husband. Do some outdoor work. Hang out with the kids when they get home. Make sure they do their homework. Make a nice cheese plate for dinner, paired with a bottle of wine. Maybe take the dog... — read more
Anyone else in a branch? I’ve seen 2 from our area let go, though I’m sure there are a few more I haven’t heard about yet. No FC’s (so far at least)
Branch closure in Bay Area
Shame on you!!! You have laid off senior employees that have given their heart and soul! You have chosen poorly. You also have not thought of your clients. I would like to walk into a branch seeing a familiar face. Not only young people who do not... — read more
I don't have number for all geo-locations, notably Orlando, but this is where we're at today: SF - 40 Lone Tree - 95 Chicago - 25 Raleigh - 5 Austin - 61
I got a coaching memo around the beginning of the month and dated to the end of this month, any idea what is going to happen? especially with the coaching memo folks? are we next to get laid off?
The VP of Trading Experiences told everyone in the DS All Hands today that he laid off 7 POs this week, mostly from TX. (he said that's about 42% of the team). He then asked if anyone "knows any rockstars" in Chicago, because ALL seven positions are... — read more
My dad was laid off by Charles Schwab yesterday. He said the severance package was fair but he is still severely stressed out about finding a new job, especially since he is in his fifties and the entire industry seems to be in shambles (his... — read more
Can someone please confirm how employees are notified they are being laid off?
SEntry team was entirely layed off. Really sad. Say good bye to the Java and C based SEntry client libraries.
With TK gone and all the money wasted on UOP let’s hope DBC and Cannon with its make-believe “CWS” designation were also given notice
I'm not naive to believe that layoffs are going to stop at some point. I'm simply wondering how long are they going to continue at this tempo? Can we expect the layoffs to, at least, slow down any time soon?
Any word about layoffs occurring in Raleigh?
It’s probably not possible to reach an exact number of the people that were laid off, but I was hoping that people could post how many people were laid off at their location and that, in that way, we could reach some kind of a frame number of... — read more
So glad I spent the last 3 years “unleashing my potential”. This has been the most depressing, demoralizing, and sad day.
Everything I read, hear, and see.... the numbers still don't add up to 600 to date. Am I wrong?
With JC’s email about Realigning Retail is The Purge finally over or will there still be more layoffs the rest of this week?
Not gonna lie, seems like everything a particular EVP did is being undone as the first wave. FED lowers rates again may or may not be factored into the 600. EC in Indy next week should be uncomfortable... especially in the parking lot that can't... — read more
Today is supposed to be a big day. Creating thread for people to post updates as they happen in each geo-location. Good luck all!
