Male-dominated company in male-dominated industry, but the company and several individual managers (both male and female) are making strong efforts to support women colleagues. The culture still feels very male-oriented at times. It's not for everyone.

There is not a great work life balance even though they said it is.

I worked there for 7 years. I was denied a promotion to VP despite having completed a project that no other manager who tried could do for the previous three years. I even asked my manager early in the year what the promotion metrics are, and I exceeded them. I left, and was immediately promoted at another bank.

    If you have a person higher up that can look out for you, yes. If not -- if you're on your own -- then you might not get the promotions and raises that you deserve.

As at many Financial Services companies, women are the minority. Although men seemed to respect their female colleagues, and women are able to be promoted alongside men, there are less women in senior management than men (in the Institutional Equity Division). There is also a much more significant density of women in sales than in trading (currently one women on all of the derivatives trading desks combined). During my internship, I met two pregnant women who were not discontent with the maternity leave policy because they understand that their jobs are market-focused and require face time.

    I was in Sales and Trading, and I was primary interested in trading because of my engineering background. However, they were "highly encouraging" me to go into sales and were not planning on considering me for trading positions in the future.

Extremely sexist place. Groups within the department openly talk about not wanting female analysts on the team. I can count the number of mid-level women on one hand and they don't advance. No senior women to speak of. They are extremely proud of their frat culture and plan to stay that way. The guys are lewd and inappropriate. I don't feel comfortable going to any group social events. Unless you want to play the dumb sorority girl role, there is no place for you.

its not a bad place to work in early career. fair amount of responsibility and exposure. once you have kids it becomes really tough. women just drop out. either completely overworked or utterly underutilized. feels like if you aren't white and male you just can't get ahead.

Sales is male-dominated, however there are a few women who are in mid-level roles. Very few women in senior management.
