fun work place
Teacher's Aide (Former Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 20, 2015
Pros: fun, easy to get a long with people, children were great
Cons: some teachers shouldnt be there
i loved working and playing games with all the kids. They are so full of energy and keep you on your feet at all times. The management could have been better but overall it was pretty good. Most co-workers were great with the children but there were some that didn't belong there because they didn't have the patience for the children. Its a very clean environment for the kids to play in and a nice play ground area. They also try to teach students Spanish at an early age. Overall it was a great and fun place to work

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Wayne, PAAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Not any advancement for Administrative Assistants or work/life balance
Very stressful to work for and for Administrative Assistants there is not any work/life balance. They do not allow for level advancement and have a salary cap.

Horrible place to work
Client Relationship Administrator (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 13, 2015
They preach Family/worklife balance, but it is just not true! The new CEO only cares about the bottom line. No one cares about the employees, especially if you are tenured. They hire straight from college into a position that you used to have to be at the company for at least three years to post to because of the high-net-worth clientele. I ended up hating being there.

Great place to start your career. Hard to advance in the NC site. Met a lot of awesome people. Job was demanding, but learned information about estate planning.

Not a good experience
Service Administrator (Former Employee), Malvern, PAAugust 10, 2015
I worked there over 12 years ago in HR. After 9/11, it was not a good company to work for. Not sure how it is now. I've moved out of state so I'll never work there again.

Fixed Income Senior Trader (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZAugust 5, 2015
Pros: great co-workers and you control your career.
Cons: decision making process can be slow at times, but again this is a company with 15k employees.
Excellent place to work and grow. The firm culture is deeply rooted on improvement of their employees and growing their respective skill sets to get them where they want to go.

Vanguard is very supportive of employees whom are looking to pursue the CFA or the CFP designations. The firm is also very supportive of your undertaking of learning initiatives on your own that can help support the firm going forward as well, i.e. MBA programs.

Overall, great place to work.

Brokerage Investment Professional (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 4, 2015
Vanguard has an excellent training program and provides exposure to the financial industry. A real easy going atmosphere, no pressure, it is up to the individual employee to learn and grow beyond what is taught in the classroom but there is no limit to growing potential.

My most enjoyable part of the job is that I have a multitude of duties which allows me to wear many hats. I have gained several skills to increase my business acumen, project management expertise, and business relationships. I feel that I am part of a strong team environment that helps one another in moving our business forward.
