    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Site location, licensing for new employees, they cater to diversity, its a job, physical work environment is above average compared to BofA, Merrill Lynch, Schwab, and others in the area.

    Cons

    Don't be fooled by HR's only selling points of great benefits and a great place to grow a career. The benefits are on par with fortune 500 companies benefits. Unfortunately for every good supervisor or manager there seems to be one or two bad applies (other supervisors/managers). A lot of employees find their boss uses them at their expense to look good rather than being a coach, mentor, or leader. Basically doing the right thing can be very harmful to a lot of people's career at VG. Management does not practice what they preach. If you say ANYTHING possibly construed as negative it will be used against you, guaranteed. Many employees will throw others under the bus to get ahead or just flat out lie. Good people are leaving the company and I will be joining them before or in June I hope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating burn out jobs to turn employees every two years is not ethical. Project one is a joke - Didn't you all learn anything about why assembly lines were created? Charles Schwab is not VG.

    I have been working at Vanguard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job security, PTO, work/life balance to a point

    Cons

    Low compensation, passive aggressive management, way too politically correct to the point of making everything awkward, management takes all suggestions and criticism and being negative, other employees lie or throw you under the bus to get ahead, the long-term employees are mindless, diversity is above who is best for the job, every year there is more expected of you but compensation decreases. I can go on forever about their stack ranking and how employees are rated at year end but there is not enough room to type everything.
