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!

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lunch vouchers were nice to receive. The campus is nice and there were a few nice people that worked there.

    Cons

    Low pay, very little room to move, even when promoted the reward is what you would give your paperboy, management are the worst I've ever seen in 15 years of working in a professional setting, many friends that stayed stayed because of outside commitments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should be auditing every manager for the positive impact they have on the business, their team, and the work atmosphere. And quit it with the nepotism and giving raises or promos to your friends or those that are not qualified, but "seem like a good fit..."

    Doesn't Recommend
