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.

    "Vanguard"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    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
