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.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to grow your career and get experience in a low risk environement. Tons of mobility into virtually any area of the company. Great benefits, Awesome people and fun environment.

    Cons

    Slow moving decision making sometimes, pay could be better, and some positions tend to go to "fast tracked" crew with little consideration to other qualified candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the red tape, Consider modifying how accelerated development program candidates are evaluated to ensure that true HIPO crew get the promotion and those who do not perform as well are not moved on too soon.
