finance Job Reviews
Women who work in finance departments have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.4, 44.8% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $50k-$80k.
The type of role definitely makes a difference from a flexibility/balance standpoint. It also becomes harder to progress your career upwards when you take advantage of the flexibility offered to working moms, and the majority of senior leaders are male (likely because of this).
The company is on the surface making efforts to show their commitment to women in the workforce. There are good women's groups within the company that connect women of all levels and through which useful talks and events are available. However, it's still financial services, and a large majority of those in upper management positions are white men. It is hard to determine a path as a woman to the top, as there are not enough women up there.
Hours can be very long..Most women with children that I knew in senior roles had a full-time nanny.
As a female engineer I definitely feel like there is a strong community of women engineers who are a close support circle. You are definitely aware that there are more male engineers than female -- but unfortunately this is true all over the tech industry. Square is a great place to be.
Upper management seems to really understand women's needs and respond to them by creating policies (flexible working hours..). I am not afraid having kids will cause a setback in my career. They do need to focus on getting more women into male dominated departments.
Make friends, Take all of the opportunities possible. Try network more.
I think this is not so bad to work in this company for woman, when you are in office of course. I have no agency experience.
In investment banking, in senior positions, still mainly male, but changing.
Ensure your direct manager is ok with whatever arrangement you need
This is a challenging environment to rise to the top in, driven from Japan, and it's unlikely to change.
