Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)

January 1970

The change in HR leadership has created the opportunity for a paid leave policy in 2017; I took advantage of it and also paired it with the paid sabbatical (4 weeks) program after 5 years of service. Four months off 'paid' was a game changer for my pregnancy.

    Telecommuting is available on a case-by-case basis.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    First payment is your 6 week disability pay (you should elect 66% in advance of a pregnancy to be eligible for this benefit), 1/3 of this day comes from your sick, vacation pay. Then at 6 weeks (or 8 for c-section) through 12, that is fully paid at normal salary. So its paid, but you pay yourself first.

It's been great; I've been encouraged along the way. Definitely lots more room for women in client facing and/or middle management roles.

They have been very supportive of my growth and the culture here is great. I have never felt less than equal to my male peers and they support a great diversity/inclusion network.

    The policy has improved since I left. They should make it more clear that you must enroll in disability to be eligible for pay.

While there is always room for improvement, Schwab is better than most for woman in leadership as well as benefits.

    It depends on the position. Some roles are more flexible than others.

    It has changed since I took maternity. It was not specific maternity leave when I did... it was short term disability pay. It is now 6 weeks paid maternity

Women are rare in this industry but I feel like Schwab goes a great job trying to attract more women talent into my role. My manager is very flexible when it comes to needing to be there for my kids - whether they are sick or it's an extracurricular activity I need to attend. The only thing that would make this job better would be if I could work from home a few days/week.
