    I worked at Vanguard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance (depending on boss); most of the people are genuinely good people; benefits are outstanding; many options for growth and development through online and classroom courses.

    Cons

    A lot of talk of focus on employee engagement, but most leaders do not actually care about the people (I know this because I heard it from many of them). The company is turning in to any other corporate organization; rewarding for the wrong reasons.

    My last boss was one of worst I have ever seen when it comes to favoritism and being biased towards age, sex, personal interests. It appears that some leaders only got to their current role because they were technical experts in the group for a long time - they have no business leading people.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to talk the talk when it comes to engaging and empowering your employees, back it up and do it. Most people aren't as happy as you think.

    Pros

    Benefits and work life balance are excellent. Well known company that puts its clients first and keeps the costs low in a high cost environment. Vanguard puts crew member development high on its list. They have great programs for you to get additional professional designation or your masters degree.

    Cons

    There is a culture here. If you dont fit the mold upward momentum can be hindered. Metrics are not unfair but can be a little ridiculous at times. Technology is a joke. Systems have constant issues. When they work it's great, when they dont, not so great. The pay depending on department may be less than others in your same career path.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about the future of the company. Increase the salary of the crew members.

    Start to promote tenure employees
