Vanguard offers great benefits. These include 401k, profit-sharing plan, medical benefits & generous time off. They also offer decent training for people who have no industry experience.
I compare Vanguard to working for the government. Given the huge number of workforce, advancement is slow and beareucratic. The pay is mediocre to start, rises to mediocre mid-career, and tops out mediocrely.
Advice to Management
They should seek to allow individuals to advance more quickly based on personal performance and not place long time-in-job requirements across the board.
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vanguard Investments Australia (Scottsdale, AZ) in September 2008.
This is for a call center position. Many behavorial questions, "tell me about a time you were working with a difficult individual, how did you handle it?".
Reasons for Declining
Company put an emphasis on longevity of working at firm, not how good you were.
