    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to grow your career and get experience in a low risk environement. Tons of mobility into virtually any area of the company. Great benefits, Awesome people and fun environment.

    Cons

    Slow moving decision making sometimes, pay could be better, and some positions tend to go to "fast tracked" crew with little consideration to other qualified candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the red tape, Consider modifying how accelerated development program candidates are evaluated to ensure that true HIPO crew get the promotion and those who do not perform as well are not moved on too soon.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vanguard's benefits are incredibly competitive, and they are available from day one on the job. The people who I work with are so friendly and helpful, which makes the experience positive.

    Cons

    Career progression within Vanguard is rather difficult. I've applied for multiple positions within the company, but have found it difficult to even make a lateral move to a different department.

    The salaries are alright, but they are not exactly competitive with other comparable jobs that I've seen in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. I do realize that Vanguard is a large corporation, but at least some input should be gathered from associates when making major strutural changes that affect the way we do our jobs.
