While there are a lot of women in entry-level roles, the number progressively gets smaller as you get closer to the Partner level. The demands of the job make it difficult to have a work life balance if both people in the home are working this much. A lot of client entertainment events are also male oriented, like sporting events and golf tournaments so that doesn't leave a lot of space for women to form client relationships and might be discouraging at the managerial level.

Negotiate well! I have worked here for two years. The bonuses suck but I get paid well. I believe women are treated fairly but you need to look out for yourself.

In my year and a half at KPMG, I have been very impressed with how they treat women - specifically mothers. I have been able to take 16 weeks of 100% pay maternity leave (well, 6 of that was technically "parental leave"). Since I had only been at the firm for 6 months when I had my baby, I was worried how my time off would affect my job. The Office Managing Partner took time to talk to me before my leave and told me to not worry, and that I was looked at as an investment and that this was just for a short period of time. I was highly impressed by that. My office is definitely on the smaller end, which I believe has made a difference. My managers fight for me, and have worked really hard for me to not be scheduled on out-of-town jobs after I had my daughter. In the past year, I have been out of town for a total of 2 days (that does not include national/regional training). Busy season is always hard, but again, the in-charge staff and managers were very understanding if/when I had to leave early to pick up my daughter or take her to doctor's appointments. As a woman, KPMG treats me very well. No discrimination or limitations in the least.

Flexible work arrangements are possible while still doing interesting and challenging work in finance/asset management/regulations. The maternity leave policy has changed recently and is 16 weeks paid, and additional 10 weeks unpaid. 5 weeks paid vacation a year. There is still not than many women in senior leadership positions, but the company is trying to change that. Flexibility and time off s a plus, however salaries are below financial industry average. I feel like I am sacrificing my career a bit, but I like the flexibility.

It's not very well organized and kind of a throw in the deep to learn how to swim attitude.

Not to stress out too much. Communicate with your team re: deadlines.

Executive leadership gets it, and the new folks coming in expect it, but the middle layer has a disconnect on ensuring no uncounscious bias. It's time to use data to determine root cause and fix.

Get a female mentor asap. This would have helped a lot to gauge the troubles that fellow female employees would have to face in the workplace.
