I think the workplace is fair. You should be networking all the time.

If you are single with no children, Vanguard could be a great place for you. I struggled with equality as a mother.

    All exempt level positions are pretty flexible but non-exempt or client facing roles are less accomodating. The Charlotte office is mainly non-exempt, client facing roles.

    6 paid / 3 unpaid

    My direct supervisor called me serveral times while on leave asking when I was coming back to work. I found out from Human Resources after the fact that this was aganist company policy. In addition, I struggled to get adequate time off of the phones to pump and there were only two mother rooms.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If they are willing to be paid less than their male counterparts, they can gain experience at a reputable company, and climb the corporate ladder rather quickly.

All of my immediate managers/reports in the corporate finance division were men.

    Maybe. Depends on career goals. Advancement is not quick there and while they did have more senior women in finance/corporate roles, no parity in terms of numbers vs. men.

Like many other companies, if you intend to make use of all the great benefits (flexible schedules, parental leave) expect to be penalized. Vanguard is very secretive about employee pay so although they make many claims about women and men being paid equally for equal work and women in leadership there is no available data to support this.

    Maybe. I have experienced some sexism in the office, but with the release of new benefits, I do believe Vanguard is a good place for women to work overall. Flexibility can be manager-dependent.

Vanguard has a great culture and mission - to help every day people reach their financial dreams. With main campus located in a plush Philadelphia suburb, the company is worlds away from Wall Street, both by location and attitude. At Vanguard, I love working with smart, driven people who are honestly very kind and friendly. People care about doing the right thing for the company and the clients. With integrity, work ethic and the right attitude you can really follow your passion at Vanguard.

The higher up you are in the organization. the more resources you have available to utilize however the lower you are the harder it is to be able to utilize any resources available. Execs preach work-life balance but lower levels don't get the opportunity to practice it.

    It was disheartening to see upper management new moms get promotions as they returned to work, however anyone in lower non-management roles don't even have the opportunity to apply for roles while they are out on maternity leave.
