"I have felt respected and treated as an equal since day one. I do feel that I have the same opportunities as men, but I am left wondering about the pay differential between men and women - this data is not released or discussed openly. CS measures diversity solely with gender but the good news is that we are moving toward a broader definition of diversity, specifically with our push to hire and promote more black talent in the Americas. I am lucky to have a great manager (who is a man btw) who has acted as a mentor and provided me career development beyond belief, so my positive experience could be more related to my team. There is a good amount of women in senior leadership roles, which is a positive thing to note. I have never at all felt discriminated against by anyone (and mind you this is a global company and we work with others across the globe daily) for my gender. Overall the culture is good for women from my perspective (this is key) - I will be clear and say that I am a white woman, and realizing my privilege, I would be more keen to listen to minority women and hear their experiences.

"The culture is difficult - for men and women. The US business is not important to the firm. They don’t invest in us."

"If you're seeking a platform for promotion you need to network outside of your existing division. Key roles are moving out of NYC so there won't be much opportunity for promotion above VP there."

"Lots of female high-potential recent graduates are hired, but tend to leave after a few years. There are very few women in senior management, which is consistent across the investment banking industry."

"They recently extended maternity leave to 20 weeks and announced it with fanfare. They failed to tell women that they did not extend FMLA protection to the additional 8 weeks, so women are now unknowingly losing their rights to return to an equivalent position."
"Ample opportunity but must be persistent"
"The company has a solid infrastructure in place to support women - good maternity leave (relatively speaking for US), childcare facility nearby, benefits, etc - but the culture is too conservative and does not empower women to the upper levels. Male domination in the upper ranks and lack of flexibility for working mothers is an issue once you reach a mid-level position. It is still a pretty conservative environment for a woman with a family and the right values to prosper beyond a certain point."
"CS is making great efforts to retain and recruit women. It's actually one of the bulge bracket banks most focused on diversity. Obviously, there are not a lot of women in senior levels (Director and above) vs other industries, but the ones who work here are amazingly supportive and outstanding women. There are informal and formal women's networks and they have been progressively adding maternity and family-friendly policies. There is even a return to work program for women who have been out of the workplace for several years. The NY campus has new maternity rooms, with hospital grade Medela pumps on each floor. Maternity leave is good, compared to Wall Street standards, although they could make it longer given the nature of this business and the need to start traveling once you return to the job. It's also group specific on whether or not your team supports you taking the full benefit. There are several official flexibility programs available to all employees, but these are rarely used on an official basis."
