    Vanguard has a good company working dynamic. Employees at all levels are eager to help facilitate quick resolution to issues.

    Many of the positions at Vanguard were filled by contractors and they did not seem to be in a hurry to bring those contractors into the company in a permanent role. Rather they would cycle contractors in and out as needed.
