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

    Pros

    Benefits start on day one. They give you a lot in you retirement accounts and they have a lot of business and prestige.

    Cons

    They are turning more call center based. They are forcing associates to be customer services reps because they have done away with brokerage as a position and encompassed in with customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be competitive by making things like the competitors and continue to set yourself apart and you will be successful. Clients are used to getting transfered to make trades the changes are adversely affecting your crew members and as a result the service that your shareholders are recieving.
