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

Pros

Lots of PTO immediately
Friendly work environment, don't feel like your job is on the line everyday
One of the only companies I've worked for who says client is #1 and means it
Good training
Average benefits

Cons

As I said it all comes down to pay. You put up with frustrations at any job, but receiving reasonable pay can make a big difference in your satisfaction. They say its competitive, its not. On average it is probably 10-15% below industry average. In some positions it can be as much as 40% below average if bonuses are included.

Everyone says the benefits make up for low pay. I guess they don't know what benefits are like at other companies. It used to be on par with Fortune 500 companies. Now, it's slightly below average.

Advice to Management

Fix compensation or you will see a massive drain on talent when the job market picks up. A lot of current employees would stay if pay and career advancement was better. Its nice to work at a company with good values and a nice work environment, but that won't pay a mortgage.
