I worked at Vanguard full-time for less than a year

Pros

Ideal for those who are graduating college, the company likes to hire young and promote quickly. In general nice people.

Cons

Very process-oriented, low pay, political environment. Managers don't necessarily have experience in the role they are in charge of managing, but they are there to manage people, processes and paperwork. This provides a disconnect between teams and managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company should take steps to recognize employees strengths, and make sure employees are in the role that's best suited to those strengths and experience. Sometimes strict rules and processes aren't beneficial.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Training is second to none, they really make sure you are ready for the job when you hit the floor.

    Cons

    Sometimes tough to move through company as a lot of employees are going for same positions.
