I worked at Vanguard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Vanguard offers generous vacation and a lot of job security. Partnership Plan was good until they "fixed" it.

Cons

The pay is low, despite what HR preaches. Lots of stress. Good work/life balance for some people, but not if your on the phones.

Advice to Management

Loosen the purse strings!

    I worked at Vanguard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Building relationships are almost as important as the work you produce.
    If you seek opportunities you will find them.
    Positive attitude pays of dividends here.

    Cons

    If networking is not your strong suit it will be hard for you to move ahead.
    Most say the pay but I would disagree when considering total comp (including benefits and time off).

    Advice to Management

    Swift action should be used more often...

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. 401k company match + profit sharing every summer + Quaterly 401k Contributions.

    Cons

    You have to be in the company for at least 1 year for the company match to start. And 5 years to be fully vested. Pay sucks + good benefits + Job stability= You determine.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the political bureaucracy amongst each other. Some of these people are just fakes. If they see you want to move up get ready to get pull back. This depends on the Department of course. Lack of transparency at year end reviews and forget about an increase unless you get promoted. This increases are less than the rate of inflation. Unbelievable.
