    Pros

    Anonymity is probably the best thing about the place. It's huge and no one knows who you are unless you want them to

    Cons

    There's little left for the people at the bottom of the very steep pyramid. The benefits go to the guys at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the love. Share the wealth. Rather than being so secretive about the company's true goals, how about sharing what you're really thinking rather than hiding behind platitudes and six-sigma stuff.

    Looks good on a resume. That's about all.

    Pros

    Status and reputation of the company, looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Low pay, understaffed (each staff member must do the work of about 2-3 people), files piled up the ceiling with angry customers who have been waiting for their issues to be resolved, but not enough staff (Vanguard is too cheap to hire an adequate number of people), antiquated DOS record keeping system that breaks down and even senior staff cannot resolve issues, unreasonable production demands, unfair method of calculating performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise fair methods of calculating performance where complex and problem issues receive more weight than simple transactions like changing a client's address. Get updated computer system and do away with DOS. Provide adequate, hands-on training instead of coma-inducing lecture-based training.

    Laid back. You can basically work as little or as much as you want productivity wise. It is a great place to great licensed and get your feet wet as far as finance goes

    Cons

    Salary. you can make much more other places

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. There is a reason they have low costs
