I have been working at Vanguard full-time

Pros

Allows a great family life, great people to work with, learn a lot about product offerings. Provide training though VG university.

Cons

Low salary, must climb to the top even with great skills, benefits including health care have dropped meaning they have done away with PPO plan. The AHF will cost about 2500 out of pocket expense for individual and close to 4k for a family.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    On site benefits
    Great reputation in investment community
    Fair benefits
    Work-life balance is a big plus
    401k match and contributions are above norm

    Cons

    Compensation changes have dramatically reduced employee pay over last few years.
    Employee 'stars' are identified early and are rushed through the promotional process as long as they behave and agree with their boss.
    It seems like management has to sell their soul to stay in good graces or they get pushed out. The good managers with experience are being moved out of the way for younger 'yes sir' replacements.
    HR talks the talk but division leaders push a more sinister agenda - must have good legal department.
    Diversity is pushed so aggressively from entry level up to middle management (no higher for some reason) that reverse discrimination is demoralizing to the rest of the crew and diverse crew can get away with practically anything.
    Pushing new ideas or not agreeing with the status quo is a death sentence to anyone's career.
    Fear for future with inexperienced leaders (that look good and are politically correct) demoralizing experienced crew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what crews say instead of managing what they say toward what you want to hear. Compensation or lack thereof will soon bite you in the quality of service from IT and from your client associates.
