I worked at Vanguard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Vanguard offers generous vacation and a lot of job security. Partnership Plan was good until they "fixed" it.

Cons

The pay is low, despite what HR preaches. Lots of stress. Good work/life balance for some people, but not if your on the phones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen the purse strings!

    I worked at Vanguard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great training to get in the door. (Series 6 & 63) Not that great once your in. For the most part it's was just a call center. Didn't do what I/we were led to think.

    Cons

    Not that great once your in. For the most part it's was just a call center. Didn't do what I/we were led to think. Found out that the pay was below the standard for individual having their license.

    Mixed feelings. Not much opportunity unless you are younger

    I worked at Vanguard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security. Ok benefits. Nice peers good training.

    Cons

    Lower salary. Not much room for career growth unless you are younger. Managment does not appear to appreciate mature associates with experience in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit catering to "Ace" associates
