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.

There are a few male employees who are adverse to strong female personalities, but you need to rise above and push on.

    Maybe. Certain roles/departments within the company tend to be more accepting of female employees.

They make an effort to support and promote women in finance. There are many opportunities to connect with different groups, grow your career, have a solid and steady employer, and meet many friendly and interesting people. The maternity leave has gotten better in the last two years, but there is still room for improvement with that and other work/life balance issues.

    Some departments are given the flexibility to work from home or work flexible schedules (4 ten hour days etc.). Not everyone is treated the same across departments in that respect.

    Make a monitored system for using the New Mom's room (not just using reservations). Sometimes other women cut into my time (making me wait to use the room), reserve multiple rooms, or don't remove times they don't need anymore.

Schwab is a great place to work for women. You can create your own destiny and there are women in multiple power positions.
