I have been working at Vanguard full-time

Pros

The one financial firm that truly cares about and acts in the best interest of its clients. You feel as though your work is meaningful. Work/Life balance is encouraged. Benefits are above average. Most employees are genuinely nice, ethical people.

Cons

Compensation is not competitive. Employees are stretched because it's a lean organization. Leadership is slow to make decisions. High-performing employees are often not the ones rewarded with advancements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more attentive to talent development. Many high-performing employees do not feel appreciated or adequately rewarded.

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

    Pros

    Private ownership, focuses on good of the whole company - shareholders and crew. Works hard at doing the right things. Great learning opportunities, most opportunities posted for all to see, on site gym, doctor's office, and "university". Opportunity to rotate through different departments and job responsibilities. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    Tends to follow vs. lead industry.
    Won't get rich quick...no stock or options program. Got to put your time in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
