Vanguard – Why Work With Us?

Vanguard is passionate about people and helping others. Whether it’s our clients or our crew members, we share a commitment to putting others first and this mindset has created an organization that’s built to last.

We believe that success is measured by:


  • A workplace where you can have an impact, build a career, collaborate, and be recognized for your professional contributions.
  • Career paths that leverage your strengths and make you feel excited about coming to work every day.
  • An inclusive environment with visionary, caring leadership; collaborative, supportive crew members; rich, diverse career development resources; and opportunities for lifelong learning.
  • Adherence to the highest standard of ethical behavior and stewardship in all that we do.
  • Meaningful involvement in the communities where we work and live.

Founded in 1975, Vanguard established a new kind of investment management firm – one owned by our investors, not private parties or shareholders. Every day since then, we’ve operated on the premise that prosperity comes through serving clients first; and the results speak for themselves. Today, Vanguard is a trusted and respected industry leader, with:

  • 15,000+ talented crew members, in ports of call worldwide
  • $4+ trillion in assets under management

We are stewards of the assets of more than 20 million clients around the world. With 16 offices around the globe, we serve:


  • Individuals investors
  • Participants in employer-sponsored retirement plans
  • Financial advisors
  • Institutional investors

Vanguard is committed to serving our clients, our crew, and our communities – what we call serving the “3 Cs.” It’s our responsibility to give back where we can, help strengthen the local communities where we live and work, and continue to invest in the future of our surroundings. Our crew give back via VTO (Volunteer Time Off) days, where they help a charity of their choice, through contributing to worthy causes through donations, community impact campaigns, and charitable match programs.


From growing fresh produce to donating blood, Vanguard crew members are giving something back each and every day. Learn more about our community involvement here.

Vanguard’s core purpose is to take a stand for all investors, to treat them fairly, and to give them the best chance for investment success.

 Crew members serving in client-centric roles have the opportunity to be the voice and face of Vanguard to the clients who trust us to help them meet their unique investing goals. From helping first-time investors establish new accounts to guiding high-net-worth clients as they expand and preserve their portfolios --we're there every step of the way.


 If you have strong communication and relationship management skills and a thirst for knowledge, you'll thrive in our fast-paced, supportive environment.

At Vanguard, we don’t have ‘employees’ or ‘associates’. Our workforce is a tightly-knit assembly of 15,000+ ‘crew members’, excelling in career paths as diverse as finance, accounting, information technology, human resources, marketing and communication, law, and more.

Join the tech-savvy Information Technology crew members who maintain and advance Vanguard's position as an industry leader. Here, you'll leverage new and emerging technologies to build innovative solutions for our clients and our business. If you're ready to collaborate and contribute to our global success, you will thrive here at Vanguard.

Each day, we ask for our crew members’ best, while supporting them in full with:


  • Resources and support that lead to individual and shared success.
  • Professional development programs to help develop crew members’ knowledge and abilities.
  • Growth through diversity in an inclusive environment featuring numerous Crew Resource Groups.

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (Less than a year)


    Vanguard has an incredible culture with flexible hours. Everyone there actually believes in putting the needs of the investors first. All crew members are willing to help you in any way possible, and I absolutely loved my experience there. I got a ton of exposure to senior leaders and chief officers as well. There were many opportunities to get involved and take on leadership roles.


    There were no negative experiences that I had. They really do a great job taking care of their crew members.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA) in March 2020.


    After you apply you take a hacker rank test. If you pass they will schedule a phone interview. its all behavioral. then you get moved into onsite, but because of the coronavirus I had an online interview so my experience may differ from here. first we entered a call with everyone interviewing to go over the process, and look over a case study that we will have to explain how to implement later. then you enter a call with your first interviewer. for me this was all behavioral. Next, is the technical interview. I had no actual technical questions.(ex: what is oop.) for me it was explaining in technical detail the projects I had on my resume, the case study, and my internship experience. this was on a Friday and I got the job offer the Monday after.
