    I have been working at Vanguard Investments Australia

    Pros

    Great environment
    Great training
    Great job security
    Good place for a college student
    Great resume builder
    Really good retirement benefits

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to move up in the ranks
    Duties of the job become repetitive and boring if you need variety

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more opportunities for promotions and pay increases. Management shouldn't be so hard on they're workers. Entry level position should be at a higher salary

    I have been working at Vanguard Investments Australia

    Pros

    Steady. You don't need much of your brain to do a good job.

    Cons

    Very political. Some of the middle level managers are basically idiots. They don't treat their direct reports with any respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start laying off the incompetents.

    I worked at Vanguard Investments Australia

    Pros

    Great institutional clients
    Great coworkers
    Great if you're a minority or have an MBA from a top school, otherwise forget about promotions

    Cons

    Poor pay
    Principals more talented at politics than anything else
    Low cost provider = low satisfaction employer
    White collar factory work
    Still mandate business attire for people who will never see a client

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Goodship Vanguard is what it is and will never change. If you want a civil servant's job in the private sector, this is a great place to be.
