I have been working at Vanguard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Training is second to none, they really make sure you are ready for the job when you hit the floor.

Cons

Sometimes tough to move through company as a lot of employees are going for same positions.

    Pros

    lots of support to build your career - best if you start at Vanguard.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the top 5% in your specialty, forget Vanguard. Generalists excel, specialists get crushed! Especially if you are an experienced specialist (over 50 and already built your career).
    Big push to hire younger, less experienced (and less expensive) crew.
    Service is very standardized - not much creativity/customization unless you pay ad even then, your service team has less than 10 years experience and never worked for any company except Vanguard.

    Advice to Management

    Don't throw the experience out with the high salary. Client deserve best of the best - and when $$ is the only consideration, you lose creativity for efficiency.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time

    Pros

    Allows a great family life, great people to work with, learn a lot about product offerings. Provide training though VG university.

    Cons

    Low salary, must climb to the top even with great skills, benefits including health care have dropped meaning they have done away with PPO plan. The AHF will cost about 2500 out of pocket expense for individual and close to 4k for a family.
