    Pros

    Fine way to get into the financial services industry if you're out of college or in a part of your career where you could retire but would mind getting paid to stay busy. Location is nice, pleasant. Overall I enjoyed my short stay there, which would have been longer if not for the...

    Cons

    Pay. This position made me come to the conclusion that the financial services industry doesn't necessarily pay as well as one might think unless you have an MBA, and even then there's no guarantee. I was surrounded by MBAs who made as much (or as little) as I did and I was a non-MBA.

    Pros

    Truly cares about and acts in the best interest of its clients (even at the expense of its employees), extremely ethical. Lots of learning opportunities and services on campus, the part of your compensation that includes your 401K and Pension is phenom

    Cons

    Base Salary is not competitive with industry standard, slow advancement process, can be extremely stressful for the pay, sometimes it takes Vanguard a long time to sign on to things that other companies have been doing for years (work from home, business casual or rather "appropriate" dress, etc)

    Advice to Management

    I think it's time to start increasing salaries (atleast keep up with inflation) and please bring back the PPO
