I would say that out of all of the employers that I have worked for in my career, Schwab is the most diverse in terms of hiring and equitable in terms of treatment of women in the workplace.

    Employees with non-exempt status have less flexibility than exempt employees. It makes sense for certain roles that require customer service support where shifts apply. It would be great if more flexibility was offered in non-exempt positions where shifts are not applicable.

This is a great place to work! I've been here over a decade. They've moved me from SF to Denver. I have had three maternity leaves and two sabbaticals. I am looking forward to a third sabbatical. I cannot imagine working anywhere else. I love it here.

    Flexibility really differs form team to team and is at the discretion of your manager. It would be nice if it were consistent across the firm.

There is appears to be a definite ceiling. Positions with higher pay, more opportunities tend to go to men. Getting an interview for other areas is very difficult, most will talk to you informally, but an actual interview is hard to snag. Your referrals of your friends and family to positions will most likely not even get a phone screen.

I find in my area women are treated fairly and respected. I would highly recommend women to work for Schwab.

Schwab is one of the best places to work - while there are pockets of too many men in leadership roles, there are great opportunities for women.

Working mothers get very little support here. If you have kids, you are going to need a very flexible, very reliable child-care plan. For example, the office never closes when the local schools close. And telecommuting is not an option. And management does not announce whether the office is open until 4:00 am the day of, making it impossible to arrange back-up child care.

My pay is not at the same level as my peers. I came into the role low in my range, and have had a hard time moving up the pay scale. Management says that gender diversity is important to them, but I'm not sure that it flows down to their actions. Actions speak louder than words.

Schwab makes a clear and conscious effort to support women in our workplace. From day 1, I've felt equal to all employees (both male and female) who work here because gender & hierarchy boundaries don't exist!
