    Maybe. I would definitely set expectations for women to understand that we have limited resources for women to pass the Series 7 and that our pass rate for women are extremely low. Leadership is male led in which they struggle in relating to women in many facets of our career/roles.

This is a good organization for. The CEO is a family man and very humble. Employees and their opinion are important. They don't pay competitively. Also across the organization there are a lot of inefficiencies and reactive strategies.

The culture is very much high-school. You have to be in "close circle" to even do your regular job effectively. I understand that no matter where you go, you have to build relationships and be some sort of circles to succeed. However, this is the worst I have ever seen. There are companies out there that meritocracy can win.

    Some people can work from home, but that policy seems like not available anymore. The ones who got "grand-fathered" kept that "benefit". This is not very fair.

    Improve on transparency, there is no meeting in my group and people don't explain things or give direction well. It's a pretty passive-aggressive environment.

Benefits and pay are good. Flexibility is limited. There are very few female leaders -- For example, only 25% of Walt Bettinger's (the CEO) leaders are female. Our group has 20% women (1 of 5) and the next level up is 100% men -- not a single woman (beside his admin).

    I do wish there wasn't such a demand for "seats in chairs" for areas that are more technical where work is not always collaborative with folks in your location. This flexibility to work remote, even if random or once a week, would help with flexibility in a very substantial and impactful way.

    Maybe. It depends on the area. I've found that areas of Information Security and Information Technology are very male dominated and difficult for women leaders to break into at the VP and higher level. Areas in Finance, HR, Procurement tend to have more female leaders.

Schwab offers a really fantastic women's network and support system! I feel like not only do the women do a great job supporting each other, but many of the men do as well.

    Although the culture does not support a team of remote employees typically, we do have the flexibility (in certain roles) to work remotely when necessary. It gives me the flexibility to manage exceptions to the schedule that come up at home.

I think its a good company although compensation relative to peers may not be great. Schwab does not strive to overpay and it shows in the recruiting. They do care about people.

    I think it depends on the manager and the role. I feel that working from home is not really an option on a consistent basis.

    Allow us to hire more people, especially technical support. The expectation is to always do more with less which gets extremely frustrating when the company is doing well.

It is a supportive workplace for women, however it is critical that you take ownership of your career and seek out opportunities.
