I have been working at The Vanguard Group full-time for more than 7 years
Pros – Site location, licensing for new employees, they cater to diversity, its a job, physical work environment is above average compared to BofA, Merrill Lynch, Schwab, and others in the area.
Cons – Don't be fooled by HR's only selling points of great benefits and a great place to grow a career. The benefits are on par with fortune 500 companies benefits. Unfortunately for every good supervisor or manager there seems to be one or two bad applies (other supervisors/managers). A lot of employees find their boss uses them at their expense to look good rather than being a coach, mentor, or leader. Basically doing the right thing can be very harmful to a lot of people's career at VG. Management does not practice what they preach. If you say ANYTHING possibly construed as negative it will be used against you, guaranteed. Many employees will throw others under the bus to get ahead or just flat out lie. Good people are leaving the company and I will be joining them before or in June I hope.
Advice to Senior Management – Creating burn out jobs to turn employees every two years is not ethical. Project one is a joke - Didn't you all learn anything about why assembly lines were created? Charles Schwab is not VG.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
