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!

I say that promotions are few and far between for both men and women. Salary increases are rare as well. Negotiate a strong starting salary because other than minimal annual raises that don't cover cost of living, you won't get pay increases.

    My team is extremely flexible and accommodating about working remotely. However, other areas of the company do not allow that flexibility.

The change in HR leadership has created the opportunity for a paid leave policy in 2017; I took advantage of it and also paired it with the paid sabbatical (4 weeks) program after 5 years of service. Four months off 'paid' was a game changer for my pregnancy.

    Telecommuting is available on a case-by-case basis.

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    First payment is your 6 week disability pay (you should elect 66% in advance of a pregnancy to be eligible for this benefit), 1/3 of this day comes from your sick, vacation pay. Then at 6 weeks (or 8 for c-section) through 12, that is fully paid at normal salary. So its paid, but you pay yourself first.

It's been great; I've been encouraged along the way. Definitely lots more room for women in client facing and/or middle management roles.
