I have been working at Vanguard Investments Australia

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 ManagementAdvice

Start laying off the incompetents.

    I worked at Vanguard Investments Australia

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Vanguard Investments Australia

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
