    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, otherwise this is not a place to make a career unless you are tip-top management. The best people go elsewhere

    Cons

    lousy compensation, a..-kissing helps promotions, no room for creativity, this is not a company for those who want to advance based on skill

    Advice to Management

    Take away the Kool-Aid and get out of your offices to talk to the people on the front lines

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Start laying off the incompetents.
