Pros

Excellent benefits, Great career development: People are always moving up and/or around. They expect you to look for other positions within the company and your supervisor will help you! Great environment. Excellent company training, both online and classroom.

Cons

Company holidays are only when the stock market is closed, i.e. Black Friday, Christmas Eve are workdays. Workload can at times feel stressful.

    Pros

    At Vanguard work-life balance is a big part of the culture. People almost never work weekends and the place clears up by around 7pm. The headquarters (in valley forge, PA) is very rural and peaceful and not at all what you'd expect from such a large asset manager.

    Cons

    Vanguard relies primarily on outside talent when it come to the most technical and interesting positions. PMs for actively managed fund, for example, are usually outsourced and much of the internal strategy relies on outside consultants.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a greater openness to professional development. Like many companies it is rather hard to move from the back office to the front and at senior analyst/trader/pm level much of the staff is externally hired rather than promoted from the inside.
