Senior Computer Consultant (Former Employee), Malvern, PANovember 26, 2013
Pros: good work
Cons: there was sexual harrassment which i experienced
Received program requirements and proceeded to code and
test working with co-workers who were friendly. I learned the
importance of team work and testing. The hardest part was the
vastness of the project and the short time for completion.

The top name in investments . . . but just not for me
Client Relationship Associate (Current Employee), Malvern, PAOctober 17, 2013
Pros: work/life balance, benefits
Cons: "cult-ish, " difficult traffic situation (only reachable via major highways), limited schedule structure
Having only been employed by Vanguard for a short period of time, I cannot truly give a fair and complete assessment of the organization. What I can say, however, is that it is a top-notch investment firm, a perfect fit for anyone looking for a team-oriented position with great benefits, a beautiful campus, and a mission to help people with their money. – more... If you're like me and don't feel cut out for the cubicle -- but, more importantly, for the world of financial investments, securities, and the like -- then this company is not the best for you. – less

My typical day at work was converting cases. I enjoyed this job because I got to know a lot of different people due to never working in this county. I had a great Program Manager on site. The hardest part of this job was the distance. I would rather relocate but the position was only temporary.

Supervisor - Corporate Actions (Former Employee), Malvern, PASeptember 25, 2013
Pros: job security to the nth degree

Very functionalized and organized. Managment didn't want to hear ideas from staff, as they felt all the good ideas were already known. Strict around a number of silly things, including general appearance, shaving, hair length. Low base salary compared to the industry.
