"The issue with Schwab policy is that a lot relies on individual manager discretion. If you have a strict manager who doesn't believe in work-life balance, as I do currently, it can make your experience here quite difficult. Work loads are tremendous, so having some flexibility in schedule is really necessary, but I don't currently have that. "

"I would advise another woman to be herself and not feel the need to adhere to the "boys' club" culture that is often prevalent. I would also advise her to join our Womens Interactive Network (WINS). "

"Improve compensation and promote more women to leadership positions. It would also be rather helpful to HIRE more women. I am on a team of 17, 4 of whom are women - and that is A LOT for our organization."

"It really varies from role to role, and definitely varies based on your specific manager. The entry-level roles are less flexible for schedules, whereas higher level roles become more flexible."

"Great support, but room for improvement. Insurance does not support families as well as it could and maternity leave is below average. "

"You are truly part of a team dynamic here, and everyone supports others, especially during times of need due to illness, family leave, death in the family etc. There is a lot of effort to ensure you know you are cared for and support is always available. "

"The desire to be a company that treats all employees fairly is truly there. There is a lot of attention paid to diversity and bringing in more women to sales roles, technology roles and senior leadership roles. There is less success than they have hoped because of lack of applicants, which is representative of the investment services industry. I believe there will be success over time."
