institutional equity division Job Reviews
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.

Recommend to Women?
Maybe. 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.
