    I have been working at Vanguard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You can do the bare minimum and get by without the fear of losing your job. Work life balance is a priority for the company. Many opportunities and various jobs to easily move around within. The try and do good for their top talent but are sometimes slower than promised to act.

    Cons

    If you are a top performer, it is frustrating being around so many lazy people who just come in for the pay check. Pay is never discussed and is complete taboo, but at the end of the day no one volunteers their time for the company, so why not be more open about the fact that we all get paid to show up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more people fearful they will lose their jobs so they actually put some effort forth. Stop spending time on the low performers who don't even care and focus time on the top talent. Start giving the younger talent opportunities now instead of waiting for half the staff to retire in the next few years.

    I worked at Vanguard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture, vacation time, flexibility, and career growth. You can advance in your career here fast or slow. It really depends on the effort you put in and your daily attitude. You can bring the most talent and a bad attitude, it won't get you far.

    Cons

    Pay and lack of recognition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your employees growth from a career and knowledge standpoint.
