Solid company commited to excellent client service
Investment Consultant (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: excellent work-life balance, good benefits
Cons: limited room for advancement
Overall Vanguard is a wonderful company committed to helping others and keeping costs low. The culture of the company is truly client focused in everything that we do. My time at Vanguard has been mostly in client-facing roles, utilizing consultative sales skills to assist clients with asset consolidation and position appropriate products and services. – more... The management style is very hands-on and proactive, dedicated to helping associates achieve their professional goals while ensuring proper training and development. My co-workers are dedicated and hard-working. Although everyone at Vanguard has different professional and personal goals there is the common connection of exceptional client service that keeps everyone united. The most enjoyable part of my day is being able to connect with clients and help educate them about investing – less

Great Working Environment
Client Relationship Specialist (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCDecember 17, 2013
Great place to work, a lot of job support when starting out and throughout your career there. Great benefits, including time-off, 401(k), health insurance, gym, and school payment.
Some processes are a bit ambiguous and there are many ways to do one thing - sometimes it gets confusing for shareholders and other associates when multiple people work on – more... one issue and have different ways of doing things. Difficult to get holidays off. Some departments are number focused. Pay is a little less than industry standard, but you only work 37.5 hours per week. – less

Vanguard has Changed: Low cost provider is taking a toll on employees.
Senior Conversion Data Lead (Current Employee), Malvern, PADecember 7, 2013
Pros: salary, june bonus
Cons: low cost provider is taking a toll on things like.small to no annual raise or bonus, more work, less people to do it. no feeling of the company having any loyality to employees anymore.
I loved Vanguard, however in the past 3 years, the change in management on many levels is bringing crew down and not looking like a great place to work anymore. Things are different, folks with tenure are being forced out every year. Loyalty for the company is gone, if your fresh out of school with an MBA, Vanguard is working to push you to management – more... quickly, but they are getting ride of those to actually do the Work. Good Luck Vanguard. Success at Vanguard is if your young and have many degrees you are safe. If you are older than 35 and have over 6 years of service.....you are on your way to being pushed out quickly. – less
