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

Pros

People are great. Company reputation as a stable safe place to work is amazing. Very close to Philadelphia.

Cons

Slow to no innovation. Not really a place if you want personal and skills growth. Pay is average or low in comparison to other financial firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to change the community, listen to your employees and not outside sources.

    Current Employee - Project Administrator in Malvern, PA
    Current Employee - Project Administrator in Malvern, PA

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, room for growth for someone coming in at an entry level. Continuing education opportunities are encouraged. It is a multi-generational and multi-cultural working environment. HR is a force there. Team oriented work environment.

    Cons

    Technology improvements are very slow to materialize. Most technology dollars are used for what the client sees - slow to improve internal systems. Many departments use there own technically skilled staff to build workaround solutions to solve processing issues locally - the risk here is the know how may leave when that staff member moves on to another position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply more technology dollars to internal systems. Offer technology budgets at a departmental level.
