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

Pros

Work/Life balance, on-site dining, gym w/ showers, family events throughout the year; great training programs; take in to consideration opinions of lower-level employee; ample team meetings; great intranet; too many more, I could go on forever!

Cons

I wish they had branch offices sprinkled throughout the region (like a Schwab or Fidelity or Edward Jones)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I love my management team, even Jack Bogel would sit with people at lunch LOL

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Pretty good benefits
    - Allowed to look for opportunities
    - Bursts of company growth

    Cons

    - Decisions that negatively impact employees are communicated as "this is best for you"
    - Slowing chipping away at what once made Vanguard unique
    - Avoids changing with the times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees more credit and understand they know they are often getting "screwed" with changes to company policy. Also do not think you are at the forefront of many of your fringe benefits when other companies have been offering them for years!
