Only 3 offices nationwide.Charlotte is the smallest office. Not much advancement if you're not willing to go to PA or AZ offices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    somewhat redundant work
    no opportunity for performance based bonus or commissions.

    Pros

    The company has a good reputation and working here will look good on your resume. The benefits are good and the campus is a very attractive place.

    Cons

    The salaries are very low. The culture is conservative and corporate. Ineffective/outdated problem-ridden technology (my department used an outdated DOS system which was constantly having problems), crushing workload, understaffed - each person does the work of 2. Poor training - and training partners/mentors are held to same production standards as non-mentors, therefore not really available for the people they are mentoring. Performance assessments are calculated in an unbalanced/ineffective manner where complex transactions are weighted the same as simple transactions. Overall, the emphasis at Vanguard is on cheapness and this is most evident in the low salaries, the resistance to staffing fully and the resulting backlog and angry customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide staff with up-to-date technology so that they can do their job effectively. Hire an adequate number of employees to handle the workload. Give training partners a lower production requirement so that they are available to work with their trainees. Use a fair method of calculating performance where complex transactions are weighted more heavily than simple transactions.
