"Before joining Capital, I knew this was going to be a long-term move for me, so I asked the scary questions. Ex. Tell me about maternity leave, tell me about what it's like being a mom at Capital. Not only was I given the resources to talk to the benefits team but, a female VP called to tell me her experience and perspective and thought process. I was shocked and so pleased. "

"Flexibility at CG truly depends on your specific manager, your role, and your department. We work in a highly regulated industry so there are certain departments that aren't able to provide the flexibility that most people would want/appreciate. Over the years, Capital has started to slowly evolve in response to employee engagement results related to flexible work arrangements."

"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. "

"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"

"I worked at CG for 2 years. In all departments (yes, more so in HR, but also in Accounting, Finance, and all the way up to executive level), women were a strong presence. Family life was not a deterrent in women excelling. I generally felt respected and encouraged to grow by my male manager initially, and then by the female VP I reported to. Overall, there is a lot of integrity at this company that I didn't expect to find in the finance industry."
