I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Nice people, culture and campus

Cons

Management pushes the low cost approach which has transitioned to low service to the client. Has recently tried to maximize every cent for the better of the "owner" expense ratio however, to the defeat of lower client services, lower compensation, and lower morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Crewmembers cringe when they hear that Vanguard has lowered the expense ratio... again!!! Lower pay, bonuses and benefits.

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (more than a year)

    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

    do the right thing for shareholders

    Cons

    do the wrong things for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    knock off the WILS program. I've heard WILS participants actively trashing how organization for promoting men. What kind of example is that? Other program participants, such as BPN, lay low and do their thing without being so flashy and brash. It is truly disgusting how Vanguard is looking to just insert women into leadership positions. I see too many times when women get promoted to senior positions, such as F or V, and they have no business being there--either on a leadership basis or technical basis.
