There are a good number of women in technology but they are mostly in business analysis roles. There is the typical unconscious bias issues that come up day in and day out that one must manage. There are diversity efforts sponsored by senior managers and these efforts are action oriented programs including sponsorship, mentoring, and training.
There are a lot of women working in the private bank, but not a lot of new, younger moms. I think this is attributable to different evaluation methods and metrics that have been put in place over the past 5 years in addition to the lack of support that younger moms get from older more established women.
Generally I believe women are treated fairly but senior management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues.
There is a focus on the advancement of women. The company generally offers flexibility, but it can be at a manager's discretion and thus you won't necessarily be able to take additional unpaid maternity leave or work from home.
I joined JP Morgan Chase due to their excellent maternity benefits & being listed as one of the best places for working moms. They also have a great policy for telecommuting. The team I originally joined was very supportive of my family plans & being able to telecommute. However, after I joined, the leadership on my team changed. As did their policies & stance on telecommuting. While I was pregnant, they were very good to me & the maternity benefits were very accommodating. However, once it came time to return they were not realistic about the demands of being a parent & requested too much. I also watched other mothers not being given the same opportunities as their male counterparts due to their family obligations. There are very few women in leadership roles. Those that are tend not to have children.
Women are looked over for promotion and they mostly go to men. They interview all even though the manager knows they will not really be considered for the job opportunity. If lower level employees have an idea, they get batted down most of the time.
I have worked here for 4 years. Employees get 3 weeks of vacation which increases to 4 weeks after 5 years of service. Maternity leave is currently 12 weeks. There is the opportunity to have flex working arrangements if you boss is open to it.
Because JPMorgan is so large, AND a merger of many different banks with different cultures, there are great departments and some subpar. It's difficult to truly know what to expect from one group to the next. There are still plenty of men in the "good ole boy" network, but it's difficult to know that until you work with these folks.
Women supportive all the way, after a while working here if you're good all your effort will be recognize and paid on: opportunities, new challenges, flexibility on your job as a new mom without sacrificing authority or the position you might have earn with time. They are highly interested of keeping women on manÃ¨ge meant positions therefore provide several options to make it work for moms
