Pros

Very good total benefits package. 401k contributions are great. Friendly atmosphere. The Vanguard name is recognized as a leader in the industry.

Cons

Very process oriented in everything. Lots of meetings and discussions that may not lead to any real progress. Some managers are in their roles simply because the length of time they have been with the Company. Promotion seems to be based on seniority instead of merit.

Advice to Management

If you are going to say that everything is based on performance, than follow through with it. It is clear that is the direction management wants to go but your mid level managers don't seem to care about it.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance, Benefits, 401(k) has rich matching program. Very good place to start a career. Great location and easy commute.

    Cons

    Salary, promotions are based on who you know and not ability. Very political. Rumor and innuendo run wild. Revision to Partnership Plan was sold as "the Crew wanted it" I don't know too many people that would vote for a significant reduction in their salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so Paternalistic. Be truthful with the Crew and teel them the truth about Salary and benefit decisions. If cost is the main driver for everthing, say it is!
