You have to be at the top of your game with impressive credentials and achievements to advance your career at Capital Group. Consistent above-and-beyond performance is a pre-requisite for building your career. Otherwise, be prepared for slow-to-no growth and lip service on helping you attain your career aspirations.

    In IT there is more flexibility than in Investmestment Operations but overall, the firm has an inflexible working hours and performance expectation in mind for all associates, especially in the customer service organization. The leadership of the firm also has a very clear ideal profile in mind for associates who are more likely to advance and progress in their careers. People who take advantage of flexibility, unless they are male, do not progress in the firm. The ideal profile varies from department to department but it's definitely a thing.

    Be less political and more clear about advancement opportunities. Offer less cronyism and promote people who are good leaders who care about their teams vs people who are in favor with leadership and understand how to manage up effectively.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Historically the firm hasn't been truly committed to diversity but perhaps that's changing recently.

Top issues are promotion/pay equality and undermining communication targeting women

The Capital Group is very focused on diversity & inclusion, including a laser focus on enhancing gender diversity. Progress has been made in the past few years and this remains a top priority of the organization.

There is an immense culture of respect at the firm, associates are encouraged to speak their mind and contribute to creative solutions/projects. There is a lot of emphasis placed on employee development and the resources provided are unparalleled. Senior people at the firm are very approachable and want to help you succeed.

Front office lacks diversity (race and sex), like most investment management firms. For how ahead of the curve they are on retirement and hours, they are equally behind the curve on female specific benefits. When looking at industry standards, here's how they shake out: Below average: Vacation Salary IVF Freezing eggs Upward mobility Quality of managers varies immensely Average: Maternity time Above average: Hours/work, life balance Retirement benefits

    Maybe. Quality of experience heavily dependent on managers and departments. Ask around for recs, there are a lot of managers that just don't know how to manage. Also A+ for work/life balance and retirement benefits. C+ for maternity leave and F for fertility assistance.
