there is no formal diversity training and people may say or do insensitive things and hide behind ignorance

The higher you move up in the company the more of the "good ole boys" culture you'll encounter.

    In my particular role, there's a pretty good amount of day to day flexibility. I do wish they'd be more progressive about maternity/paternity leave. And it's infuriating when they offer certain benefits to employees only in the state of CA because that state mandates them, but offer less to the rest

    Maybe. I would warn them about the culture in IT and senior leadership. Depending on their goals and what area in the company in which they were interested, I might encourage them to apply.

It has good work-life balance, but not so great with diversity.

    The company needs to work on it's Diversity and Inclusion policies. So far these areas have been employee driven with no real view from the top. The company has finally hired a D&I VP, but we are very behind the rest of the business in the town we work in.

Being a part of the Schwab Family has been one of my best decisions, personally and professionally. In an industry where women haven't always been welcomed, its incredible to work for a firm that has firm values and beliefs that shine through each day. This is an organization that celebrates the unique strengths that we all have to offer. There are continuous opportunities to learn and grow and I know that my opinion is valued. Most importantly, Schwab is intentional about ensuring that we have diverse talent but also that we retain that talent. We have Employee Resource Groups that foster the engagement and development of our entire staff and highlights the incredible backgrounds and experiences that we all bring to this incredible place we call Charles Schwab. Come Join Us!

    Our leadership team is very understanding and is always willing to work with employees who need additional flexibility. I have always felt comfortable speaking with my leaders about flexibility and things I needed.

There are a lot of male executives and not enough women mentors. They need to allow for more flex time.

It's a great place to work, whether you're starting your career or are in mid-career. They just improved their paternity leave policy this year and it seems that every year they make improvements, based on what employees want. Yes, they actually listen to employees! For example, I had mentioned in various surveys that I wished Schwab would contribute more to our HSAs and they listened.

    This is honestly the best place where I've been employed, and I've been in the workforce for over 25 years! I've worked at Charles Schwab for 3 years and I only have wonderful things to say about this employer. I hope to retire from Schwab in 20 years! I wish I was working at Schwab when I had my kids, because they definitely have very good parental leave policies and one of the few companies that offers both vacation and sick leave.

    They seem to improve the maternity/paternity leave policy every year. Although it doesn't apply to me any more, I know lots of people take advantage of it. There are also special "mommy" rooms on every floor for breastfeeding moms. And no, you don't have to pump in a bathroom stall!
