Contract Position
CONSULTANT TO INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKJune 25, 2014
Pros: the people were great and i learned so much.
Cons: the company was going through a merger/ buyout
I was hired as a technical writer and worked with the training team. They essentially hired me to create html navigation systems for training CDs. I worked with instructional designers and learned to use Articulate. Before that, I didn't really realize instructional design was a profession and a degree, but mutually, we discovered that my previous training – more... and education fit almost exactly the requirement of an instructional designer, and that I had really been practicing instructional design for years. As a result, they starting having me create interactive Captivate prototypes and get more involved with the design process. The team and management were great and we learned from each other. Unfortunately, like the jobs that followed, I was caught up in a merger. Actually, they asked me to stay but at a much lower salary and I already had an offer at Dollar Thrifty. The people I worked with are great and are still friends today – less

Fun and hard workplace
labourer (Former Employee), scarboroughJune 23, 2014
At vanguard, on a typical day we would dig holes for the engineers to work in and also help role the pipe out. we also attached fixing kits and gas meter boxes up to new and old caravan bases.
the hardest part of the job was working away from early Monday morning to late Friday evening every week.

Formerly incredible firm turned 'typical corporate financial institution'
Client Relationship Associate-answer a phone (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZJune 10, 2014
Pros: easiest 'finance' job available
Cons: zero career advancement, atrocious pay, vg will never sponsor finra/nasd unless they absolutely have to.
Make no mistake, VG is the king. Put it this way, early-mid 2000s, they were just creeping up on the $1T AUM behind only Fidelity. Pay has never been close to adequate here, however back then they more than made up for it due to unmatchable benefits, security and incredibly bright colleagues surrounding you. Vanguard CLEANED HOUSE in terms of other – more... companies when 2008 recession hit. They had always stuck to their guns of low cost etc, so ppl both individual and institutional flocked to get on board. By early 2013 they were approaching $2.5TRILLION!!! Yes. That is how much the wiped out other rip off firms. Good right? No. This is when this company sold out everything it ever stood for. You will be a phone rep. Period. By the time I quit (and the attrition was out of control and hear it still is ) Basically all they hire is know-nothing arrogant 22 yr old local U grads who lead the charge of incompetency that is simply rampant in that firm. The product itself, mutual funds, and most other products are absolutely the best in the biz. Customer should be happy. But internally it was no exaggeration the equivalent of working in an Indian call center with a mix of some completely brilliant, underpaid/utilized ppl, while other half were clueless twits..Made for bad mix and the management had continued to plummet..Moral: Invest there, don't work there. It's a joke – less
