    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Vanguard (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    4% 401k match, plus 10% gifted to 401k regardless of contribution. Paid overtime. Tuition reimbursement. Competitive pay

    Kontras

    Upper Management doesn’t really listen very well, bad solutions are often forced on departments that weren’t really asked for. Often our jobs are made harder. Promotion also seem to be given to those that are not very good at their job in a way to get them out of that department. Be it a Pro or a Con, no one gets fired at vanguard.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to feedback more, but overall I like what management is doing.

    Pros

    + Great Work/Life Balance
    + Solid Licensing Support
    + Admirable Mission Statement

    Kontras

    - Very limited upward mobility, despite what management says. Promotions are based more on how well you play the office politics game more than any actual skill or talent you might possess when it comes to the position.
    - Paycheck leaves much to be desired for the level of work and is below industry standards. In addition, management constantly champions their "total rewards" package, but they fail to realize it shouldn't be treated as a "one size fits all" strategy. Not everyone needs the same level of benefits. Some customization as to pay vs. benefits would help a lot.
    - Managerial incompetence is killing the company. Management can't seem to make up its mind on how the company should be organized and constantly creates confusion and needless costs by perpetually re-organizing departments.
    - Employee turnover is a serious problem at the company.
    - Technology is about 15 years out of date, which seriously hampers the ability of employees to actually accomplish work.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to your employees. There are a lot of good ideas that go unnoticed amongst the rank-and-file because current leadership is closed-minded.

    Pros

    Working for Vanguard:
    Vanguard's mission and products are incredible and have really changed the financial industry in every aspect. Working for a disruptor like Vanguard instills a sense of pride that you are fighting for good in an industry plagued by scandal.

    The Role:
    The client relationship role depending on where you wind up is a great way to work on people skills. not just chit-chatting but actual people skills, such as explaining to customers why essential systems are down just when they need them or having to reframe mindsets after other reps new to finance have led clients down the wrong path. This isn't a joke, these are super valuable challenges that you'll face probably unintentionally but it's where you learn a lot.
    You get your series 7 and 63 licenses and Vanguard makes it very easy for you to pass.

    Kontras

    To prevent emotions from getting in the way here is a list. Telling the whole story would just be too much. These are my findings from within 2 different departments of Vanguards retail group. The other segments of the company from what i gather are run completely differently so only apply that to this retail.

    -Low pay, they'll remind you of total compensation (benefits for families etc. which are great but if you're fresh outta college those don't mean much)
    -Call center environment with limited flexibility (managers have all the flexibility in the world compared to you)
    -Got a finance degree? Keep looking. You didn't go to school for four years learning about CAPM and DCF's to explain how to login to a site, fill out new account paperwork, and change addresses. (yes its an "in" just be willing to do this for at least 2 years before you dust off that degree of yours.)
    -You've probably heard this at other jobs and seen it for this company, but the retail managers are really just trying to get the heck outta dodge and spend most of their time networking with other groups to get new roles there (cant blame them). Got a client yelling at ya on the phone for something that's not your fault and they want to speak with your manager? Well hopefully if you're really lucky they are around if they're new, otherwise good luck to you friend cause they're most likely out there peddling their resume around.
    -They'll pitch you the client relationship associate role as a 1 year "do your time" (this isnt a euphemism you are clocked every minute of your day) thing but unless your manager is well connected you'll find yourself at a slightly better but equally frustrating phone role.
    -everyone's trying to dodge work, nobody want's to do more than they have to

    This was an honest attempt to not go too crazy on this, but in summary, if you're willing to do the time (again not a euphemism, as a point other groups will be disgusted about your role and say wow how do you stay sane) you'll progress and eventually make a wage that will allow to you have a reasonable standard of living. If you have a passion for succeeding, being rewarded for that success, and taking on big projects keep looking! You can do this!

    Rat an das Management

    Hire people leaders to management roles, not ladder climbers. In 2 years I've come across 2 or 3 leaders that I have legitimate respect for.

    Pros

    Great overall compensation package. Better than most broker dealers. Good training, great career opportunities, loved the Vanguard culture.

    Kontras

    Work satisfaction largely depended on the department you are in. Basic service phone job can be draining- definitely need to make the move to another department for better job satisfaction.

    Rat an das Management

    Provide better resources for career paths and specialty roles.

    Pros

    Work life balance, work environment, great people with unified mission.

    Kontras

    Technology is from 1998 or so. Managers consider themselves team members with each other. So conscious on cost cutting that they won't invest in new technology.

    Rat an das Management

    If PAS clients knew how awful the technology was managing their assets they would leave.
