Positive Outlook

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

Pros

On sight training Generous paid time off

Cons

Work life balance does not apply to low level employee Company changes bonus structure if needed to save money. Processing associates have shift changes 2x a year adding, further complicating the work life balance thingy. Complicated system upgrades that do not work slowing down productivity and creating several work arounds. Excessive forced overtime.

Advice to Management

Better support overachievng crewmembers to recieve promotions. They are poopie heads

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Excellent 401K program. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Company changed partnership program so partnership bonus are not as great as they use to be. They promote a lot of young college kids into management with no experience at all - and it shows. Very low morale across the company. When you bring it to upper management attention they dismiss it. Not able to help clients like we use to be able too. Have to tell them "no" often. Seem to be managing people 40 and over out of positions for very lame reasons. I would not recommend this employer. You will feel like a hamster trapped in an exercise wheel. You will work hard and go no where at all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your crewmembers. They are unhappy and need to be heard.

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

    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!
