Pros

Vanguard is a really good company to work for provided you know what you are getting yourself into. If you have a family and want a place that will challenge you but not break you, work between 40-50 hours, Vanguard is the perfect place. Their health care is amazing and they really do care for you as an employee with a family.

Cons

Climbing up after the initial first couple promotions is nearly impossible. Its understandable that with any company that is true but the feeling is that with Vanguard it is more prevalent. So many promotions are political moves vs. deserved moves. Additionally, compensation is a bit below market value but honestly being a family man, its well worth it since you get extra vacation to spend time with your family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more deserved promotions vs. political ones. Other than that keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Great 401(k) and health benefits. Company is very organized and well positioned in the market. Most managers care about their workers a great deal

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility is difficult for younger workers. At-cost mindset is great for clients but hard for employees that are motivated by financial reward. Never fires anyone, even under-performers who hold the team back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Strong business model, job security, good benefits, nice people, doing the right thing for clients.

    Cons

    Company continues to cut investor costs at the expense of employees. Poor technology platform. Company promotes individuals who often lack technical experience. The brown nosing makes me puke!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth. Did Bill McNabb take a pay cut when he was promoted? Instead of cutting expenses give the employees a raise.
