No opinion of CEO

Pros

Steady. You don't need much of your brain to do a good job.

Cons

Very political. Some of the middle level managers are basically idiots. They don't treat their direct reports with any respect.

Advice to Management

Start laying off the incompetents.

    Pros

    Great institutional clients Great coworkers Great if you're a minority or have an MBA from a top school, otherwise forget about promotions

    Cons

    Poor pay Principals more talented at politics than anything else Low cost provider = low satisfaction employer White collar factory work Still mandate business attire for people who will never see a client

    Advice to Management

    The Goodship Vanguard is what it is and will never change. If you want a civil servant's job in the private sector, this is a great place to be.

    Pros

    Vanguard offers great benefits. These include 401k, profit-sharing plan, medical benefits & generous time off. They also offer decent training for people who have no industry experience.

    Cons

    I compare Vanguard to working for the government. Given the huge number of workforce, advancement is slow and beareucratic. The pay is mediocre to start, rises to mediocre mid-career, and tops out mediocrely.

    Advice to Management

    They should seek to allow individuals to advance more quickly based on personal performance and not place long time-in-job requirements across the board.
