    Great for building your career, not good for established specialists (aka over 50)

    Pros

    lots of support to build your career - best if you start at Vanguard.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the top 5% in your specialty, forget Vanguard. Generalists excel, specialists get crushed! Especially if you are an experienced specialist (over 50 and already built your career).
    Big push to hire younger, less experienced (and less expensive) crew.
    Service is very standardized - not much creativity/customization unless you pay ad even then, your service team has less than 10 years experience and never worked for any company except Vanguard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't throw the experience out with the high salary. Client deserve best of the best - and when $$ is the only consideration, you lose creativity for efficiency.
