Charles Schwab Maternity Leave Comments

  • "Great company to work for. Maternity benefits need some work." - Anonymous - 6768
  • "Depending on which group you work with, there are amazing leaders who understand the difficulties of working parents and provide support; however it would be nice if the overall company would support this instead of making it bureaucratic. Also there is no paid parental leave, which holds them back as a great company to work for." - Iedatkt
  • "No paid maternity leave. " - Iedatkt
  • "Support of flexible work schedules and overall culture vary from department to department, and are largely dependent upon your organization within Schwab, or even your direct reporting structure. In most areas, there are great leaders, male and female, and there are many positive initiatives in-process to continue to make Schwab a great place to work. I would say that the company in general supports work-life balance. However, without many formal policies in place (e.g., telecommuting often depends solely on whether or not your director/VP is supportive) and outdated/inadequate benefits (e.g., maternity leave is bare minimum), Schwab has room for improvement in several key areas." - anon1345
  • "1 week paid by company, 6 weeks paid by 66% short-term disability (had to sign up for during open enrollment) and 33% accrued sick time, remaining 5 weeks paid by straight accrued sick time" - anon1345
  • "Schwab is generally very supportive of women and there is a growing bench of women leaders. Depending on your department you could have more or less flexibility. But, policy-wise, flex schedules and maternity leave are extremely lacking. There is zero paid maternity leave (all disability based) and very limited, only 3 months and tacking on vacation time is frowned upon though sometimes understanding bosses approve it. But for smaller company wanting to recruit the best talent, this maternity leave situation needs to change and technology and culture need to improve/adjust to make more flexible work schedules work..." - CuriousOne
  • "Great work life balance, but very poor maternity leave" - Anonymous - 10596
