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 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.
