    Pros

    Plenty of time off to work your second job. The young women who are routinely promoted over more qualified candidates tend to wear revealing clothes. You are awarded free movie tickets fairly often so you don't have to dip into your grocery money to go out. Convenient location so you don't have to drive your crappy old car to far. Awesome place for herd animals.

    Cons

    Honesty or original thinking will get you blackballed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    View diversity as different perspectives instead of race and gender quotas. Acknowledge that there are serious morale problems. Charge yourselves with making Vanguard an engaging place to work rather than pushing down the task to your underpaid frontline supervisors.
