It takes a lot of work to investigate where you stand relative to peers (in compensation and otherwise). Depending on the office, it may be difficult to get relevant information from others at your same level.

    Seems flexible from what I have observed; for hourly employees, job performance seems to be measured by number of hours worked.

    Be more transparent about compensation and about paths to leadership positions.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. No transparency in compensation, so it's difficult to know if men and women are paid fairly.

The benefits and policies are good. Research the department first and history of reorganizations, online reviews, etc. before accepting a position. Core business units earning revenue are in a better position for long term stability rather than business support roles which are being largely outsourced or sent offshore. The company is going through significant change and restructure, so it could turn out to be a great career or short time before being laid off.

    Policies are in place to "Work from Anywhere". However, some managers overlook the corporate policy and implement their own which is often more rigid.

    Allow for engagement and opportunity to provide value add.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I might recommend my employer depending upon the department the woman was applying. The culture within IT, for example, is very male dominate even though the CIO is female.

Relationships that you form are very valuable to mobility within the organization. Get to know people who can help you move around.

There is a lot of opportunity but also a lot of chaos as the company is constantly changing the entire organizations structure.

Your career development and work / life balance largely depends on the specific business or function that you work in. That being said, it is easier to shift roles / departments within the company when compared to other large financial institutions, and there are employee resource groups to that generate networking opportunities and development opportunities.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The extent to which it is a constructive environment for women depends on which department she is working for. Some corporate functions offer better work / life balance and are more diverse, while certain businesses demand more time and tend to be more male dominated.

Its a great place to work, although we are not where we want to be from a diversity perspective. However, there is no doubt the new CEO is committed to women & diversity at the top; his Executive Leadership Team is 45% women.

They value work-life balance, with little overtime and generous vacation days. Working from home once a week is a norm in many departments. That said, it's overwhelmingly male at the top and a rigid chain of command culture doesn't allow a more vibrant and dynamic work environment.

    I did not take the maternity leave personally, but the official policy allows 3 months, plus two weeks bonding period. Paternity leave is generous (I believe it's two months) and is not stigmatized in the company, which is rather exceptional in the financial sector.

    Maybe. Good work-life balance, but very hierarchical, with few women in leadership positions.
