Pros

Anonymity is probably the best thing about the place. It's huge and no one knows who you are unless you want them to

Cons

There's little left for the people at the bottom of the very steep pyramid. The benefits go to the guys at the top.

Advice to Management

Spread the love. Share the wealth. Rather than being so secretive about the company's true goals, how about sharing what you're really thinking rather than hiding behind platitudes and six-sigma stuff.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Think about getting rid of some of the overlapping staff. Most of us are just sitting around browsing the web.


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

    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 waiting for their issues to be resolved, but not enough staff (Vanguard is too cheap to hire an adequate number of people), antiquated DOS record keeping system that breaks down and even senior staff cannot resolve issues, unreasonable production demands, unfair method of calculating performance.

    Advice to Management

    Devise fair methods of calculating performance where complex and problem issues receive more weight than simple transactions like changing a client's address. Get updated computer system and do away with DOS. Provide adequate, hands-on training instead of coma-inducing lecture-based training.
