Your experience really depends on your manager. Great managers offer the most flexibility because they trust you.

Charles Schwab Investment Management review You should pick your manager wisely because they have a direct impact on both your day to day experience on the job as well as your future success in the firm.

    I feel under utilized and under appreciated by my manager.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It really would depend on the situation (i.e. position, hiring manager, candidate).

The gender bias is pretty institutionalized and as a woman who had spent most of her career with high-powered women execs in charge, the culture was a shock. Also, women wear pantyhose in some depts.

    While ultimately up to each manager, leadership is not supportive of telecommuting and a monthly report of telecommuting hours is submitted to the CEO, sending a message that it is not seen as an appropriate.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. gender bias is no worse than other financial services co, but that's not saying a lot. That said, there are a lot of good people at the executive and every level, that want to promote equality. I would recommend that women evaluate any opportunity there based on their own needs and gut check with the group they would be working with.
