What's more, a lack of regulatory experience may hurt her chances of getting the SEC post - though former SEC head Arthur Levitt didn't have any when he took the helm.
ALWAYS HAS A PLAN
Still, many who have worked with her say Krawcheck was a smart, analytical and competent executive who not only knew the business, but was good at building consensus among different units of companies. She helped restore brokerage Smith Barney's reputation at Citigroup and was popular with many of the financial advisers at Merrill Lynch.
Schumer and other lawmakers contacted by Reuters did not return calls or requests for comment about meetings with Krawcheck or their thoughts about her.
In the end, of course, Krawcheck may not land in Washington at all, two people who know her said.
She has had discussions about a variety of roles with several companies, one source said.
"She has lots of balls in the air," said the source, who asked not to be named because the conversations were private.
"Sallie always has a plan."
