Schwab has a culture of inclusivity and collaboration where people support each other and lift each other up. Schwab makes it possible for me to have a career and be able to take care of and support my family.

    I took leave a week after I started at Schwab. It was unpaid because I had just started, and I didn't qualify for paid leave.

Schwab really values women and we are seeing an increase in diverse leadership roles where women are concerned.

    A lot of the flexibility or lack of flexibility are related to role. With regard to working from home for non-client facing roles, there could be more improvement.

Make sure you are a good fit with your management. Some employees are put in a management position, and their expectations and the expectations of the culture vary greatly, or they are brought in and are not understanding of the culture. Make sure your expectations of the position match your manager's and that you are in a position of growth, or your career may be hindered, or you will be encouraged to move to a different department in order to grow your career.

    Maybe. Charles Schwab is very particular about the job and environment matching the candidate. I would recommend if I thought the personality would be a good fit.

Overall positive. There is some room for improvement in balancing out senior executives with more women and people of color. There are some groups that are much more diverse than others.

    There is a strong preference for always working in the office. The ability to work from home regularly would be better for both parents and help retain younger employees.

    Their leave has improved since I had my children in the early 2000's. I could use sick time and vacation time and was paid only as disability at the time. They do have a much more generous maternity (and paternity) leave policy now.

Great support, depending on the department/team for which you work. Historically, there has been support for identifying potential growth as long as it supports enterprise goals (which I think is entirely reasonable).

The benefits here are great, and they make it a priority to hear people out about what could make our lives easier. Something that I have noticed is that it takes forever to get promoted. No matter how long you have been here, and how much you have contributed, it is so rare for someone to get promoted. I have heard of colleagues leaving for 4 months to another company and then coming back and applying to a higher position to come back just so they can get that promotion themselves and get the higher pay they are looking for. Aside from that being more of a con, Schwab is known for having a great caring culture in the work environment, their facilities are top notch.

Schwab is a company striving for a better tomorrow, which is extremely encouraging in a male dominated industry.
