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

Pros

Pleasant work environment with very friendly, intelligent, and cohesive employees. Good benefits and nice area as well.

Cons

Low pay compared to industry standard and somewhat slow advancement process, military structured pay grade, micromanaged phone positions with very little flexibility.

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

    Pros

    I've been at the Vanguard Group for 2 years. My pay has increased 10k in that time and I have gotten a promotion. There is 100% job security here as Vanguard has NEVER laid anyone off. The managers really care about employees and if there is something that's wrong, they will actually fix it based on feedback. You have to GIVE the feedback to get it fixed though, obviously they can't fix something if they don't know its broken. As far as compensation goes I feel that I am appropriately compensated for my job. I did get an upward adjustment of my pay because there was unequal pay in my department. The health benefits are really good and there is an on site clinic and gym (in PA and NC offices).

    Cons

    Feedback given when turned down for a job can be vague, cafeteria has limited selections that are all "healthy."


  2. "Staid, but secure"
