Former Employee - Client Relations Associate in Malvern, PA (US)

I worked at Vanguard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Highly ethical corporation which is a refreshing rarity in today's financial industry.
Comparatively speaking, most of their fund returns lag in bull markets, but the trade off is that
your capital is well protected during bear markets.

Cons

Business practices, in terms of service provided to the client, tends to lean towards elitism.
Employee reviews were critiqued more on a personal level as opposed to a professional level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Every client is entitled to quality client service.
Vanguard is a corporation not a college campus. Employees should be evaluated on contributions, not popularity.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The very highest of ethical standards and concern for our clients. Unfortunately, not as much concern for the crew (until very recently that is - and even that is being treated like a project rather than a cultural adjustment.

    Cons

    Compensation, compensation, compensation. The company is very proud of being "average" in this area and that is acceptable. Benies are good and crew believe in the company so there is not as much attrition as there could be but this is a real issue that should be addressed across the board. Average is not good enough for such a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise compensation.
