Employees matter, but he clients matter more. That’s why the business exists in the first place—to serve clients. You work for the company, they don’t work for you. You may be entitled and have the attitude “well I’ll just go somewhere else, it’s an employee market”, but those days are coming to and end. With inflation at an all time high, and a recession imminent, companies everywhere will start trimming the fat. Those that provide the most value to the bottom line are the ones that will stay. I’d recommend you change your winey entitled attitude and start realizing your place. You are the employee not the employer. You are paid to do a job.

OP must be a Schwnossaur aka an old white male that is stuck in the 1980’s. Retire and go home.
Also be thoughtful of your position. You are a manager not owner.
Welcome to blue, the land of move your mouse to look busy and a website inspired by Visual Basic circa 2010.
Green are like baby birds constantly squawking to mom, “feed me”, so tiresome. I wish we would just move the clients and forget about greens trashy systems. I’m not sure what else Green expects, Blue has been more than accommodating. Just give them what they have been asking for, freedom and unemployment.
All this resentment and bitterness. You can smell the Green.
OP definitely bitter. Probably at Green.
I'm reminded of this little gem from "The Power of Moments" (Dan & Chip Heath): "You can't deliver a great patient [ or client -- my edit] experience without first delivering a great employee experience." TDA always got that; Schwab never will, I fear. When I left both TD & Schwab reached out to convert my Green (well, Orange) and Blue trading accounts. Guess which went more smoothly from a customer experience POV? Res ipsa loquitur. :-)
I think people like you are upset they spent their whole lives being bootlickers and hate seeing others hold employers accountable
Glad these corporate dinosaurs are on their way out the door and will be relegated to watching TV Land
4 A1’s, 4 personal agendas to solidify their power, none of which have anything to do with the client. I would say rank and file care more about the clients than the Les Schwab A1 Heier troll does.
So many decisions based on A1 opinions and power - definitely not through the clients eyes. So pretty self serving. Not client serving.
At schwab its clients, shareholders, A1’s, followed by all others. Its hard to serve the client when mgmt’s attitude is what you posted.
I agree with this. The current generation of workers are so lazy, needy and entitled. Nobody wants to earn respect and value anymore, they just assume because they are there, they should be held in highest regard, sorry but that has to be earned...derp
And this is why Schwab has such a great Schwulture! Just schwut up and schwork, it’s schwell to be treated like schwite. Schwab nice is corporate brainwashing, schwamily
