I think that women are treated equally and there are a number of women in senior leadership positions.

Respecting others and work/life balance are both very important parts of the culture at Schwab. Family time is honored.

It is a male dominated industry. I feel that it helps to be a strong female to thrive.

    When I began working for the firm it was right after maternity leave. They welcomed me and accommodated me for my nursing needs.

I have worked in the financial business for over 30 years. I started as a young girl in a trading room in the early 1980s. very tough environment for women back then. Those experiences were invaluable and made me the women I am now. Schwab is the most civil work environment hand down from any firm I have worked for. It is a great place for women to work and not feel like they are second class citizens. I would HIGHLY recommend Schwab as a great place for women to work.

January 1970

The issue with Schwab policy is that a lot relies on individual manager discretion. If you have a strict manager who doesn't believe in work-life balance, as I do currently, it can make your experience here quite difficult. Work loads are tremendous, so having some flexibility in schedule is really necessary, but I don't currently have that.

The finance industry is very male dominated, despite the efforts of this firm, there will still be barriers for women to overcome.

I would advise another woman to be herself and not feel the need to adhere to the "boys' club" culture that is often prevalent. I would also advise her to join our Womens Interactive Network (WINS).

    It really varies from role to role, and definitely varies based on your specific manager. The entry-level roles are less flexible for schedules, whereas higher level roles become more flexible.

    Improve compensation and promote more women to leadership positions. It would also be rather helpful to HIRE more women. I am on a team of 17, 4 of whom are women - and that is A LOT for our organization.
