Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-get the best person for the job- not the biggest brown noser
-before buying a big system or making a huge change, ask the workers that will be effected, not there supervisor who don't have access to current system

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, but not what it used to be. The partnership is great, but not what it used to be.

    Cons

    The pay sucks unless you've been there for a long, long time but even then compared to you doing the same job at another company the pay sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stunting growth and creativity!

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, 401K, vision dental, life insurance policy, licenses are paid for, professional training.

    Cons

    Vanguard runs at cost. This is great for the client, but your pay and growth within the company especially in North Carolina and Arizona will cap out @ around $50K.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    30 and 45 minute lunches outside of tax season should always be optional. Running a business at cost and efficiently was the dream of Jack Bogle; running a business understaffed and having clients wait 15-20 minutes before they reach an associate was not.
