never consider institutional ops
Processing Associate (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – 5 February 2018
If you care anything about your job and how it is done or the integrity this company is supposed to have, it was never recognized and actually caused more problems. If you spoke up about a procedural mistake or inefficiency, unless you were one of the chosen few to advance in the dept, you were not taken seriously. Favoritism is on steroids there, and very, VERY few qualified/hard working people are actually promoted. Many talented people leave or are forced to stay in an entry-level job they absolutely hate and are devalued on a constant basis (people getting fired all around you without warning, timed breaks (to the minute, can't take break during beginning, near lunch, at end of day), constant "big brother is always watching" environment). Vanguard claims to be looking out for their clients' well-being, but from my time in RKS Ops, I would say otherwise. This ship is sinking, and I'd stay clear at all costs.
