Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)
Review User Image

January 1970

There are a lot of employee-friendly and family-friendly policies on the books. Your manager plays a big role in what type of flexibility you can achieve--policies are in place but often don't apply equally to everyone (example: you can work from home but occasionally and generally only with a rationale such as illness or some other extenuating circumstance. It's the exception and not the norm in most cases--but gets easier the more senior a person is).

There are a fair amount of women in analyst, associate, and vice president levels. However, once you try to get to the MD level, women are not as visible. This is likely due to the high demands and limited flexibility for home/work balance. So either women do not try to get promoted, or leave before it happens.

The company has carefully checked all the boxes from a policy and facility standpoint. I got 16 weeks paid leave and pumping facilities in the office. While I took the full 16 weeks, I noticed many people worked through mat leave and/or came back early.

There are not enough women at the top, but there are lots of women in the middle and the firm is working hard to get more women at the top.

Technology department treats women really well and does whatever they can to hire and retain them. I've been very happy here and have never had an issue if I had to leave early to pick up my children and I am allowed to work from home whenever necessary.

Human Capital Management

January 1970

I'm new to the company, but have had a solid experience so far from the perspective of being a woman in the organization. I don't feel that I'm treated any differently based on my gender. The firm is focused on advancing the careers of women within the firm. That said, I think the financial services industry at large still has a ways to go before equality is reached. There are still very few women in executive roles across the industry.
