Women here are very supportive, but there is work to do in the promotion and retention of women in leadership especially at Officer levels

There are great opportunities in Financial Services especially at Charles Schwab. Although, in some departments more than others it is still dominated by men so you may feel isolated at times. We are actively working on getting more women informed about what we offer and the career possibilities.

    CS&S has recently unleashed schedule flexibility for representatives but for Managers in CS&S it is difficult to obtain this flexibility without feeling like it's a bad thing to want and do.

I think Schwab is a great place for a woman to work. However, I will say, I also think it depends a lot in what department you work in. I have noticed some inconsistency in certain policies such as remote work and flexible hours.

Women support one another here, and many of the managers are blind to gender (I mean that as a good thing).

In an industry dominated by men, we need more women. I have never felt that Schwab treats women differently and there are many female leaders in high positions to look up to. Schwab is proud to celebrate all diversity and inclusion.

    Your hours are your hours and you need to be there for clients. I do not have flexibility to work from home in my client facing position, HOWEVER, the are many positions that DO have this flexibility.

Changing to a results-oriented culture with greater acceptance of work-from-home and flex-schedules (as opposed to current way where WFH hours are closely tracked/monitored, which has made the culture very face-time heavy), offering emergency/backup childcare assistance, addressing the gender equity and pay gap issues, all could improve the espirit de corps among women and make it a better place for women to work. Feel the firm has a long way to go to being a great place for women to work.

    A few years ago the company made a policy change to strictly monitor work-from-home hours and only in limited cases is it allowed. It's become a very face-time oriented culture, and for working parents this can be especially hard. It shouldn't be a blanket company-wide policy but rather one that's determined by individual teams/workgroups, like it is at so many other companies.

My previous employer was always shoving "shareholder value" down our throats. In the 10+ years I've been at Schwab, I've only heard it mentioned a handful of times - how refreshing!!.

I am surrounded by many fantastic and strong female leaders. I truly believe Schwab promotes talent without bias towards gender. Benefits, Employee Resource Groups, policies and internal practices have all been family friendly, from what I've seen. Diversity is recognized and voiced as incredibly important among leaders at all levels. I cannot say enough good things about Schwab and fully intend to retire here!

    The degree of flexibility is, of course, very dependent upon your role. If you're in a phone based role, your options are limited but leaders genuinely care and are very willing to find solutions if you need accommodations for emergencies, etc. Increasing web technology makes it a lot easier to work from home if your specific role allows it and, from my experience, this has been an available option as needed.
