    Pros

    Vanguard is a growing company searching to find it's place among the big established companies supporting the healthcare industry. You can help make a difference in this way as your contributions are noted quickly.

    Cons

    Compensation and salary are below the industry standards for employees and management. It has an open door to the headquarters for employees to voice grievances which often leads chaotic situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on competitive pay scale and reward experience.

    Pros

    The company has fairly good benefits.

    Cons

    Company pay is low for this industry and work-life balance is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate business practices and consider changes in this industry when making decisions. We are not living in the 1990's anymore.

    Pros

    Always work, no lay offs. Overtime available. Good environment at clients location. the idea is there but not being pursued by on location management. Loss of Contracts will be the cost.

    Cons

    Turn over is really bad due to pay standards, but more so PRIMARILY due to management. For example when an employee never calls in sick, is always at their scheduled time, works overtime when asked, then STOP changing their schedule. Allow them to have a life they can plan on. Treat them right and they will work when requested or required. When you don't then you suffer turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk positively to good employees and "hear" what they have to say. If you are an effective manager act on their issues they honestly bring to you. Use the cameras to see who is not doing their job, AND WHO IS, and then take action. Changing to another director will not accomplish anything if he just starts changing things (schedules) without first observing.

    Pros

    Good Benefits... that is all!

    Cons

    Training was horrible, no respect from the upper management. They expect you to know everything before you get there. They want you to work 80 hour weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create some training programs for employees and respect them.

    Pros

    Well intentioned company with employees and customers interest at heart. Employees have a direct access to call corporate with any concerns they may have regarding work issues if desired. This is not always good but it is an option if so desired.

    Cons

    Wages are below comparable industries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase wages to attract and keep best talent

    Pros

    They will support their people, empower them and grow them from within. Especially for entry level employees they can give you a long term future.

    Cons

    Sometimes their growth hinders them being able to be everywhere they need to be, possible victims of their own success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure they are methodical in their approach to growth, and promote their leaders to team-build.
