Financial Processor (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZJuly 30, 2014
Pros: hour long lunches and two 15 minute breaks
Cons: healthcare
There is a lot to be done therefore the time flies quickly. Employees lear about different financial investment vehicles and their characteristics. Management does a great job of accommodating employees and their needs, while co-workers contribute to the overall culture of teamwork. The hardest part of the job would be the flex schedule, it takes a – more... while to adjust. Best part is the overall experience at Vanguard. Great company to work for. – less

You get out what you put in!
Investment Consultant (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZJuly 30, 2014
Pros: took care of employees during busy times
Cons: promoted favorites that were less qualified than others in most cases.
A typical day at work started with client follow up and review of previous days activities. I learned a lot about time management. My co-workers were wonderful and caring. The hardest part was the lack of interest of management in the employees concerns. The best part was the lower management who created a family environment.

Pros: could come in on my own time.

Job was very easy and self explanatory, I would work there again if they had a location closer to where I live now.
