TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – June 22, 2018
While this company is great for people with families or those coming right out of college, it is not the place to try and change the world. There are too many managers in place that have no business being in their positions. It is about who you know rather than what you know.
Client Relationship Specialist (Current Employee) – Malvern, PA – June 11, 2018
This role is heavily monitored on a systematic basis with little opportunity to influence your own decisions and being heavily encouraged to stay within similar types of roles even after the time in job requirements are met.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Monon, IN – June 4, 2018
Not a bad place to start at but after you have kids and stuff I wouldn't recommend working there at all people are grumps convicts come and go never know if stuffs gonna go down or not bomb threats every other month
Long List (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – May 19, 2018
This is a good place to start your career and attempt to take advantage of the programs they have to get extra licenses etc... Lot of bureaucracy takes place to advance jobs and you know how to have to play the game to get far in the company... I did learn a lot early on in my career but Vanguard would like drones to answer phones and get you to Index.
Financial Coordinator for St. Mary's (Former Employee) – Charleston, WV 25301 – May 15, 2018
Vanguard financial services was a good starter office job. A good place to get your foot in the door while upping your resume but it was not the place to stay for a life long career. There wasn't much room for advancement as it was a small company.
Pretty high paced call center environment. Excellent company culture and management truly focused with your career success and progression. Monthly meetings with management to keep you on track with your goals.
Financial Presentations Specialist (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – May 8, 2018
Poor salary Have to have a "cheerleader" attitude, be bubbly all of the time and volunteer to do all of their extra curricular activities in addition to your own job which they are not shy about piling it on but with NO increase in pay. Other wise its okay.
Team Leader - Retail Investor Group (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – May 1, 2018
Vanguard is very suitable for a long and steady career. The company is growing to a size where bureaucracy and proliferating processes are at their worst, and leadership development must take a backseat to scaling the business. You'll find that the founding principles of Vanguard boasted by senior leadership do not resonate in the culture or identity of many groups, depending on who's at the top of a given reporting chain.
INTERNATIONALPROJECT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – April 30, 2018
Vanguard is a great place to start your career and maybe even stay for the long run. I found that It was becoming more difficult to find new challenges and move across the set paths they have for people. The pay doesn't match a lot of the industry but with yearly (small) raises and bonuses/good benefits your overall package is competitive.
Business Development Specialist (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – April 23, 2018
Excellent company. Certain advancement positions in career ladder would require relocation. Solid portfolio of mutual funds to offer. Only drawback is nearly all starting roles are telephone/call center positions. ..
