Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men

Lady anon292 Summer AnalystInstitutional Equity Division
As at many Financial Services companies, women are the minority. Although men seemed to respect their female colleagues, and women are able to be promoted alongside men, there are less women in senior management than men (in the Institutional Equity Division). There is also a much more significant density of women in sales than in trading (currently one women on all of the derivatives trading desks combined). During my internship, I met two pregnant women who were not discontent with the maternity leave policy because they understand that their jobs are market-focused and require face time.
I worked here for 4 years and loved it for the first 2 years. It's a male dominated industry/company so be prepared to encounter cut-throat personalities.However, whenever I was looking to advance the regional management teams always found a way to veto it. Although it was a terrible ending, I am happier with my choice to move on. This is a great entry level company and I am thankful for the learning opportunities I had there but unless management is supportive of career advancement, it will not end well.

The company is fine - but when you worked on the business side, it's quite brutal for a woman. Especially one like me that's doing fertility treatments because my boss was completely not supportive. My normal hours were 7am - 6pm. When I was doing IVF, I came to work at 8 and my boss had an issue with that. Had I known how difficult this was, I would have seriously considered getting married early and having kids when I was younger. Oh and don't bother with HR - they work for the company, not for you.
