Current Employee - Client Relationship Administrator in Malvern, PA
Current Employee - Client Relationship Administrator in Malvern, PA

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

Pros

Job security, PTO, work/life balance to a point

Cons

Low compensation, passive aggressive management, way too politically correct to the point of making everything awkward, management takes all suggestions and criticism and being negative, other employees lie or throw you under the bus to get ahead, the long-term employees are mindless, diversity is above who is best for the job, every year there is more expected of you but compensation decreases. I can go on forever about their stack ranking and how employees are rated at year end but there is not enough room to type everything.

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

    Pros

    I loved this company from day one and 7 years later, I still love working here. I started off at an entry level phone job and now lead a team of associates in a call center. I enjoy the company's 4% 401k match and 10% discretionary contribution, benefits, bonuses, partnership and the diverse environment. I go to work happy, respected, & feeling like I have a chance to make an impact.

    Cons

    In a culture where extroversion is celebrated, introverts who are equally capable may be overlooked for promotions simply because they didn't make the right connections. Do I wish I was paid more? Yes, most Americans do. My base salary is probably on the lower end of industry averages but I try to keep in mind the many other benefits I get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look really hard and consider the impact that lower base salaries is having on crew engagement, especially on entry level, non bonus-eligible associates. There is also a ton of talk about diversity but diversity of personalities is rarely included or addressed.
