    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At Vanguard work-life balance is a big part of the culture. People almost never work weekends and the place clears up by around 7pm. The headquarters (in valley forge, PA) is very rural and peaceful and not at all what you'd expect from such a large asset manager.

    Cons

    Vanguard relies primarily on outside talent when it come to the most technical and interesting positions. PMs for actively managed fund, for example, are usually outsourced and much of the internal strategy relies on outside consultants.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a greater openness to professional development. Like many companies it is rather hard to move from the back office to the front and at senior analyst/trader/pm level much of the staff is externally hired rather than promoted from the inside.

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader, cutting edge technology, sound business strategy. The security attention for infrastructure, employees and customers sets a good example for wall street and the industry.

    Cons

    Pay is a little on the low side, and some of the older employees are shoved around. Some of the younger strategies like smart start- for fresh college grads- implied if you were old, then you were slow and dumb.
