Great place to start a career, but...

Business Development Associate (Current Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

I have been working at Vanguard Investments Australia

ProsStable company with a good reputation in the industry. Benefits start from day one including 401k.

ConsVery low pay. Not a great place to start a mid-career change. Employees very young and seem to be favored over older employees. Very mundane phone job. I would think this would be a decent job for someone in the twilight of their career that just needs the benefits and (low) pay. Seems like a good place to jump start a career and build a resume.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about getting rid of some of the overlapping staff. Most of us are just sitting around browsing the web.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Safe, but overly conservative.

Business Development Group (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

I worked at Vanguard Investments Australia


Pros: Vanguard invests in its employees' futures by training them thoroughly and encouraging them to move laterally between positions and departments. It offers great benefits… Cons: The culture is very conservative. By very, I mean stockings to work every day, hour-long meetings for "feedback" on misspeaking or offending someone. … Advice to Senior Management: Keep up the benefits, but improve the opportunities for advancement… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Looks good on a resume. That's about all.

Processing Associate (Current Employee)
Malvern, PA

I have been working at Vanguard Investments Australia


Pros: Status and reputation of the company, looks good on resume. Cons: Low pay, understaffed (each staff member must do the work of about 2-3 people), files piled up the ceiling with angry customers who have been… Advice to Senior Management: Devise fair methods of calculating performance where complex and problem issues receive more weight than simple transactions like changing a client's… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
