I worked at Vanguard Investments Australia

Pros

Great benefits and profit sharing. Vanguard is a fair employer when reviewing your performance and it helps that they care about career advancement. Vanguard is very reluctant to do any layoffs and they try hard to find areas where struggling employees will have increased chances for success.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations of what work life balance truly means. You can certainly work your 40 hours per week but anything less than 55-60 is unrealistic to achieve an 'exceeds expectations' review. A flip side of their commitment to finding employees a better job is that a few people who really do need to be let go due to poor performance can sometimes stick around too long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more project opportunities to young employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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