The culture is very much high-school. You have to be in "close circle" to even do your regular job effectively. I understand that no matter where you go, you have to build relationships and be some sort of circles to succeed. However, this is the worst I have ever seen. There are companies out there that meritocracy can win.

    Some people can work from home, but that policy seems like not available anymore. The ones who got "grand-fathered" kept that "benefit". This is not very fair.

    Improve on transparency, there is no meeting in my group and people don't explain things or give direction well. It's a pretty passive-aggressive environment.

While there is always room for improvement, Schwab is better than most for woman in leadership as well as benefits.

    It depends on the position. Some roles are more flexible than others.

    It has changed since I took maternity. It was not specific maternity leave when I did... it was short term disability pay. It is now 6 weeks paid maternity

there is no formal diversity training and people may say or do insensitive things and hide behind ignorance

Women seem to be doing OK, a few director positions were recently filled by women.

Health insurance is excellent, parental leave is minimal (FMLA or MA). Flex time is generally accepted, but is subjective, depending on your supervisor.

    Flex time is dependent on each persons supervisor. Since there is no standard policy that treats all employees equitably, I don't rate it as being very flexible.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 6 unpaid

    Paid weeks were covered under short term disability at 66% of my salary. The remaining weeks were covered by sick and vacation time. I was eligible for 12 weeks leave under FMLA.

    Improve career growth opportunities

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Career growth and professional development opportunities are very limited and the work environment is stressful and extremely disorganized. On the other hand, PTO is great (4 weeks vacation + 10 sick days + 12 holidays) and benefits are excellent (medical, dental, vision, 401K, STD, LTD, life, etc.). The exception is maternity/parental leave, which for U.S. employees is the minimum required by the government (FMLA, or state law for those that don't qualify for FMLA).

I’m happy to see an emphasis being placed on women in the company in the last year. They have specifically focused on developing future female leaders, which is really important to me at this point in my career.

    Managers often provide ad-hoc flexibility. They realize we have things going on outside of work, which I appreciate.

Departments are treated differently under the same leadership. It’s held against you for having children and wanting to have a more flexible schedule.
